Obama attends Oregon State-Akron game in Hawaii

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) President Barack Obama and the first family are momentarily skipping the beach in Hawaii to take in a college basketball game.

Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama and daughters Sasha and Malia attended the Oregon State-Akron game Sunday at the Diamond Head Classic tournament in Honolulu.

Oregon State is coached by Michelle Obama's brother, Craig Robinson. The Obamas sat just behind the Oregon State bench.

The Obamas drew a standing ovation and loud cheers as they walked in to the small arena at the University of Hawaii. Fans took pictures while press photographers and videographers crowded an entrance to take pictures.

Obama is a noted basketball fan and recreational player. Oregon State is 4-0 with Obama in attendance, though Akron raced to a 10-0 lead.
