Obama goes courtside day after being elbowed in game

Less than 24 hours after a basketball injury required 12 stitches in his lower lip, President Obama was back courtside to see a game between Howard University and Oregon State.


Obama and his family attended the game at Howard on Saturday afternoon, according to White House pool reports.

The president's brother-in-law, Craig Robinson, is the coach of Oregon State's men's basketball team.

The pooler said that Obama did not appear to be wearing a lip bandage or in any pain.
