President Obama moonlights as basketball coach

By CNN's Mary Grace Lucas

WASHINGTON (CNN) - For the first time, President Obama stepped up his game by helping coach daughter Sasha’s basketball team Saturday morning. No word on whether he was the sole coach or had help during the game. And despite a bit of a ribbing from the press, a White House staffer said he didn’t know if the team won.

It is notable, however, that daughter Sasha wasn’t on the court with her teammates Saturday. According to the White House, she is in Colorado with sister Malia and First Lady Michelle Obama for a ski trip. Mrs. Obama is chaperoning the kids along with several close family friends.
