Obama, Cameron to Attend NCAA Tournament Game
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Basketball fan-in-chief President Barack Obama is showing British Prime Minister David Cameron some March Madness, taking his U.K. counterpart to an NCAA tournament basketball game in Ohio, an election swing state.

Obama and Cameron will take in a ''First Four'' matchup in Dayton between Mississippi Valley State and Western Kentucky on Tuesday night in a gesture of goodwill during Cameron's official visit to the United States.

The White House says the trip to the NCAA tournament game is meant to showcase the special relationship between the two key allies. Obama and Cameron will discuss the upcoming NATO and G-8 summits on Wednesday, followed by a state dinner at the White House.

Obama is an avid basketball fan and regularly plays pickup basketball.
