COLLEGE PARK, Md. — A threat against President Barack Obama’s niece prompted increased security at an NCAA Tournament basketball game in which she was playing in Maryland on Monday night.
University of Maryland police said they received a text from a woman indicating that a man she knew had a gun and mentioned Leslie Robinson, the daughter of Craig Robinson, Michelle Obama’s brother.
Leslie Robinson, a freshman, is a forward at Princeton. She did not play in the game, as No. 4-seeded Maryland routed No. 13 Princeton, 85-70.
