Obama Booed at University of Maryland Basketball Game

COLLEGE PARK, Md. (CBSDC/AP) — President Barack Obama and the first family checked out an early-season basketball matchup Sunday between Oregon State University and the University of Maryland.

The Obamas were greeted by applause and some boos as they took their seats behind the Oregon State bench at the Comcast Center, the Maryland Terrapins’ home arena in College Park, Md. A few students called out to first daughters Malia and Sasha.

It’s a yearly ritual for the Obamas to watch the Oregon State Beavers play a Washington-area team. Michelle Obama’s brother Craig Robinson coaches the men’s team.

Robinson’s team prevailed Sunday, beating Maryland 90-83.

Obama is a consummate basketball fan and pick-up game player.
