President Obama to Attend Sunday's Basketball Game Against Oregon State

Win McNamee

The President of the United States will make a short trip up from Washington, D.C. to see his brother-in-law's team take on the Terps

When it was announced that the Oregon State Beavers would be playing Maryland in men's basketball at the Comcast Center this season, the immediate question that many fans had was whether President Barack Obama would be in attendance, along with First Lady Michelle Obama, to see Michelle's brother Craig Robinson, who coaches Oregon State. Today, that question was answered as it was announced that the President and First Lady will indeed be in the building for Sunday's game. This marks President Obama's fifth trip to the College Park campus, his third as President, and first at a sporting event.

The game on Sunday is an opportunity for the first family to see Craig Robinson, who lives and coaches across the country at Oregon State. Perhaps President Obama can provide some motivational words or basketball advice to the Terps before the game on Sunday. The President has frequently played pick up games while in office, sometimes with former Duke player Reggie Love. It would be great to see Obama matching up against Dez Wells in a one on one game, or against Mark Turgeon in a game of horse.

With the President being in attendance, expect extra security for Sunday's game and allocate additional time to clear security, as there will likely be metal detectors and other measures in place prior to entering the Comcast Center.
