US President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle react as they watch the Diamond Head basketball game between Oregon State and Akron during their Christmas vacation in Honolulu, Hawaii on December 22.
The Oregon State University (OSU) Beavers are coached by Craig Robinson, Michelle Obama's older brother. They held a 6-2 record going into a matchup with the University of Akron Zips at the Diamond Head Classic, an annual eight-team invitational event.
The Obamas, with daughters Malia, 15, and Sasha, 12, arrived at their courtside seats just before game-time to muted cheers from a crowd that filled about half of the 10,300-seat Stan Sheriff Center. Photo: Reuters/Hugh Gentry
