President Obama has won ... his Election Day basketball game.
Fellow player (and former Illinois Senate candidate) Alexi Giannoulias told a pool reporter that after four 12-minute quarters, Obama's team won by “like 20,” with a score of “like 102, 105, 108 or so to 80-something.”
Obama was player-coach of his team, which also included Giannoulias and former NBA player Scottie Pippen.
“It was a lot of fun,” Giannoulias said. “We won. I scored more points than Scottie Pippen, which was my dream come true.” Giannoulias said the president “played very well" but did not reveal how many points he scored.
