BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie attended Princeton University’s NCAA tournament game, but wasn’t there to support his state’s Ivy League university.

Christie sat a few rows behind Notre Dame’s bench Thursday in Buffalo as the Fighting Irish beat Princeton, 60-58.

The Republican has been friends with Notre Dame coach Mike Brey since he worked at the University of Delaware, from where Christie graduated.

Christie’s daughter Sarah is a student manager on the team.

Christie’s son Andrew graduated from Princeton last year and played for its baseball team.
