First Family in the stands as Oregon State beats GWU

President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama took their daughters, Sasha and Malia, to George Washington University's (GWU) Smith Center sports arena on Saturday afternoon to watch Michelle Obama's brother, Craig Robinson, coach the Oregon State University (OSU) men's basketball team to a 64-57 victory over GWU.

The Obamas' visit was a surprise to fans at attending the game, who were confronted with temporary airport-style metal detectors upon arrival. The president arrived just as the Oregon State team members were being announced, and he and his family were quickly seated behind the OSU bench. They stayed for the entire game, intermittently cheering, talking to friends and munching on popcorn.

Both Obamas wore black -- the president was in his often worn light jacket, while the First Lady wore a short-sleeved black turtleneck and black trousers. The First Grandmother, Marian Robinson, wore a black jacket over a maroon turtleneck sweater.

The GWU announcer welcomed the First Lady over the PA system; the president was not formally announced.
