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.
