ARLINGTON, Texas, April 8 (UPI) -- Former Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton enjoyed a night of basketball together at the NCAA championship game between Connecticut and Kentucky.

Clinton and Bush sat together and could be seen laughing as they were caught on the Jumbotron. Former first lady Laura Bush was seated next to her husband. Dallas cowboys owner Jerry Jones watched with them and Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo sat in front of the them.

Clinton originally sat in the seat behind his successor but moved quickly to the empty seat next to Bush after the national anthem. Both are known sports fans and Bush regularly attends sporting events in Texas.

The Connecticut Huskies beat the Kentucky Wildcats 60-54 to take home their fourth NCAA title.
