Wisconsin basketball player campaigns for Obama to play pick-up with team

It’s well known that President Barack Obama is fond of basketball. Whether it’s playing pick-up games or watching the USA Olympic team, Obama digs his bball.

Zach Bohannon, a former Air Force player who transfered to Wisconsin, want’s Obama to play in a pick-up game when he visits the the University of Wisconsin today. The Junior and once an aspiring US President (it has been reported he is a republican), launched a twitter campaign to get the President to come play ball with the team.

Bohannon also tweeted a picture of a customized jersey for the President.

Because it’s campaign season, this probably isn’t going to happen. However, Bohannon is right, playing some basketball might be a nice a stress reliever for President Obama.

If not today, maybe the Pres can set up a game after November 6th.

Update: The basketball team got to meet with the President, talking about LSAT and the teams upcoming season.
