An update from the president's basketball game: Former Chicago Bulls star Scottie Pippen was one of the players, and Obama snagged him for his own team.
Also on Obama and Pippen's team was Alexi Giannoulias, a former Illinois state treasurer and 2010 Democratic U.S. Senate nominee.
"It was a lot of fun," Giannoulias said. "We won. I scored more points than Scottie Pippen, which was my dream come true."
On the other team were childhood friends Mike Ramos and Marty Nesbitt, and Education Secretary Arne Duncan, a former captain of Harvard's basketball team.
The two five-player teams played four 12-minute quarters, and referees were brought in to call fouls.
Giannoulias said Obama's team won by "like 20," with a score of "like 102, 105, 108 or so to 80-something."
The basketball game is an Election Day tradition for Obama. In 2008, Obama played basketball with aides before winning the kickoff Iowa caucuses. They decided to make the games an Election Day tradition after he lost the next contest, the New Hampshire primary, on a day when they didn't hit the court.
