CORVALLIS, Ore. (KMTR) -- The Beaver men's basketball team is getting ready for another trip to the White House, thanks to an invitation from the First Lady.
Michelle Obama's brother, Craig Robinson, is the head men's basketball coach at OSU and the team has visited 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue several times before. They usually plan a series in the Washington D.C. area and stop by the White House between games.
This year, the schedule didn't work that way, but the First Lady didn't want the younger players to miss out on the experience. So she invited the whole team for Thanksgiving dinner.
The team takes off Tuesday and will return late Thursday. They have a home game to prepare for the following Sunday and don't want to miss the Civil War football game either.
