A phone message threatening President Barack Obama's niece, a player on the Princeton basketball team, prompted authorities to increase security at Monday night's NCAA women's tournament game between the Ivy League school and Maryland, USA Today reported. An eight-minute voicemail was received at the University of Maryland athletic department offices on Monday afternoon in which a woman said a man was driving on the College Park, Maryland, campus with a Glock handgun in his possession, the newspaper reported, citing a person with knowledge of the threat. The caller linked the man's appearance on campus to the game and Leslie Robinson, a freshman forward at Princeton and the daughter of Michelle Obama's brother, USA Today said. In addition to normal game security, undercover security officers were near the Princeton bench.
