The Obama were greeted by applause and some boos as they took their seats near courtside 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.
