President Barack Obama and the First Family will be in attendance at the Oregon State-Towson game Saturday afternoon at the Towson Center.
Obama is the brother-in-law of Oregon State coach Craig Robinson, whose team beat Texas before falling to Vanderbilt, 64-62, in the championship game of the Legends Classic Monday night at the Izod Center.
“It’s an honor to have President Obama and his family attend our game versus Oregon State and set foot on our superb campus here at Towson University,” head coach Pat Skerry told SNY.tv.
“It will provide great and well deserved exposure for our institution as well as a superb opportunity and challenge for our young squad to play a very well coached and talented Pac-12 squad on our home floor. We are excited and look forward to the challenge.”
