Report: President Obama's Niece Was Subject Of A Threat Prior To Maryland-Princeton NCAA Tournament Game

President Barack Obama's niece, a freshman forward on Princeton's women's basketball team, was reportedly the subject of a threat prior to the Tigers' NCAA Tournament game against Maryland Monday night. 

According to USA Today, security at the contest at Xfinity Center in College Park, Md., had to be heightened when Maryland's athletic department found an eight-minute voicemail that claimed a man on campus was driving around with a Glock handgun in his possession. Leslie Robinson, the daughter of former Oregon State men's basketball coach Craig Robinson - the brother of Michelle Obama - was the subject of the threat.
