Obama to attend Georgetown-Duke basketball game Saturday

President Barack Obama will attend Saturday's men's basketball game between the Georgetown University Hoyas and the Duke University Blue Devils, according to sources involved in the planning of the event.

Saturday's game at the MCI Center will raise money for educational programs in the war-ravaged Darfur region of Sudan, and other special guests include NBA star Tracy McGrady, Alexander Aleinikoff, the United Nations Deputy High Commissioner for Refugees, and John Prendergast, Co-founder of Enough, the project to end genocide and crimes against humanity at the Center for American Progress.

The White House did not confirm Obama's attendance, but this wouldn't be the first time he's ventured into the district to see college hoops. Over Thanksgiving weekend, he attended a George Washington University game against Oregon State, where his brother-in-law, Craig Robinson, is the head coach.
