Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron To Attend First Four Game

Barack Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron will attend an NCAA Tournament First Four game next week in Dayton, according to a report on Thursday.

President Barack Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron will take in some college basketball next week as they travel to Dayton, Ohio, for a First Four matchup. Cameron will be in the United States to visit Obama, and what better way to take in some of the culture than by attending a March Madness game, even if it is just an opening-round matchup?

The report, which cites a high-ranking White House official, comes from the Dayton Daily News:

"The University of Dayton Arena is steeped in basketball history, serving as the stage for many great tournament moments and as host to more Division I men's games than any other arena in the country," the official, who declined to be named, said. "The President and the Prime Minister look forward to a great game between some of our nation's finest collegiate athletes."

Without a bracket, there's no telling which game the pair plans to attend. Here's to hoping it's an interesting matchup, because we all know the First Four is still just a glorified play-in round, even if it is all dressed up.
