WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama will be just a fan at this basketball game.

Obama, who plays in pick-up games as often as he can, is bringing his family to Towson University, just north of Baltimore, to watch Towson play Oregon State on Saturday afternoon.

The first lady’s brother, Craig Robinson, is Oregon State’s head coach.

Catching an Oregon State game has become a post-Thanksgiving tradition for the Obamas.

Last Thanksgiving, the Beavers came to Washington and beat Howard. The year before that, Oregon State made the trip east and defeated George Washington.
