Obama introduces British Prime Minister David Cameron to American basketball
DAYTON, Ohio (AP) ' President Barack Obama is giving an enthusiastic visitor, British Prime Minister David Cameron, his first taste of college basketball ' and for Obama a chance to tap into a sports audience in Ohio, a state important to his re-election hopes.
Obama, an avid basketball fan, on Tuesday took Cameron to Dayton on Air Force One for an NCAA basketball tournament game between Mississippi Valley State and Western Kentucky.
Obama's verdict on the game during a halftime interview on truTV was that "both teams are shooting terrible" in the low-scoring contest, but that maybe the teams were nervous.
Cameron said he was enjoying the fast-and-furious action in what marked the British leader's first college basketball game.
Cameron quipped that Obama was going to help him fill out his bracket.
