TOWSON, Md. (AP) -- President Barack Obama watched brother-in-law Craig Robinson guide Oregon State to a 66-46 victory over Towson on Saturday.

The crowd inside Towson's arena erupted in cheers as Obama and first lady Michelle Obama entered and shook fans' hands as they made their way to a pair of courtside seats.

Daughters Malia and Sasha sat in the first row of the bleachers. Also attending were Obama's mother-in-law, Marian Robinson, and Education Secretary Arne Duncan, a former professional basketball player and friend of Obama's from Chicago.

Devon Collier had 13 points for Oregon State (5-1), which bounced back from its first loss of the season Monday night against Vanderbilt.
