Obama plays basketball with Malia, Sasha


WASHINGTON--President Obama--a basketball player and fan since his boyhood days in Hawaii--on Sunday took daughters Malia and Sasha to a gym to shoot some hoops.

Ths morning visit to the Department of Interior gym came a day after the president attended Sasha's basketball game Saturday at the Jane Lawton Community Center in Chevy Chase. Md., just outside of Washington.

On Sunday Obama left the White House with his daughters at 10:31 a.m. for the three minute drive to the gym. With them were Reggie Love, Obama's personal assistant and a frequent hoops companion and trip director Marvin Nicholson, also part of the inner circle of staffers who golf and shoot hoops with the president.

According to the pool report, First Lady Michelle Obama was not with them.

The group left the gym to return to the White House at noon.
