Obama plays basketball after Libya statement

After two outings at the golf course during his Martha's Vineyard vacation, President Barack Obama has switched to basketball.

Obama arrived at the Oak Bluffs Elementary School on Monday afternoon, within an hour of delivering a statement on the apparent end of Moammar Gadhafi's regime in Libya.

The White House said he played basketball with friends and members of his staff during a 90-minute visit.

Obama has played golf twice since he arrived Thursday at the resort island off the Massachusetts coast for a planned 10-day stay.
