Obama Plays Basketball With George Clooney, Tobey Maguire

Obama Shoots Hoops With The Stars

President Barack Obama played basketball Friday morning with George Clooney, Tobey Maguire and a few staff members, according to the White House pool report.

The game, which took place at the Cheviot Hills Recreation Center, came after a fundraiser on Thursday held at Clooney's house. The event raised nearly $15 million for Obama and the Democratic Party. Tickets cost $40,000. Barbra Streisand, Salma Hayek, and Jack Black also attended. Two small-dollar donors won a raffle and also attended.

The event is part of a West Coast fundraising swing for Obama. The president attended two events in Seattle; Dave Matthews performed at one.

Asked by CBS News' Mark Knoller about the winner of the basketball game, Obama said, "Of course George and I won but we're all winners because nobody got hurt."

This story has been updated to include the game's location and winners.

CORRECTION: This report has been updated to indicate that Dave Matthews performed at the fundraiser. An earlier version said that the Dave Matthews Band performed.
