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

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.

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