Barack Obama turned on a full-court press today.
The Democratic presidential candidate scrimmaged with the UNC-Chapel Hill Tar Heels at the Dean Smith Center in an early-morning workout, Anne Blythe reports.
In black sweat pants and a gray T-shirt, Obama took on Tyler Hansbrough, but he missed.
"I thought I had one over the national player of the year," the candidate said.
Obama kept up with the run-and-gun pace for at least five minutes before benching himself. When he got back in the game, UNC coach Roy Williams, who was watching from a chair on the sidelines, called out: "You've got the future president of the United States wide open."
Obama also toured the locker room with Williams and Williams' wife.
