Obama wasn’t just there to take in some great bounce passes and sound fundamental play, however, as he was on hand to cheer on his niece, Leslie Robinson who is a freshman forward, but unfortunately didn’t get into the game.
Robinson is the daughter of former Oregon State men’s basketball coach Greg Robinson who is Obama’s brother-in-law. Princeton trailed at halftime but managed to outscore the opponent by 11 in the second half to remain undefeated and improve to 31-0.
This is not the first time we have seen President Obama take in a sporting event as he’s made appearances throughout his presidency at numerous sporting events in many leagues.
And this wasn’t the first time for a member of his administration has taken in the women’s Tournament either.
Vice President Joe Biden was in attendance for the 2010 championship game between Stanford and Connecticut and was at the 2013 second-round game when his home state university, the University of Delaware, played North Carolina.
Obama got to his seat with a few minutes left in warmups and say next to his brother-in-law, but I think he didn’t get the memo about wearing orange. But maybe that’s because he went to Harvard for law school and doesn’t want to show his Tiger pride considering it would hurt his Crimson pride.
