DAYTON, Ohio (AP) -- The southwest Ohio city of Dayton has the eyes of the basketball world on it about this time every year, but the audience this year will be even bigger thanks to a visit from President Barack Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron.
   They're slated to watch the start of the NCAA men's basketball "First Four" Tuesday evening. The University of Dayton has hosted the first NCAA tournament game since 2001, and that opening game has been expanded to four games over two days.
   Mississippi Valley State and Western Kentucky tip off for the first game at 6:40 p.m. Eastern time.
   University of Dayton Arena officials are urging fans to arrive early Tuesday and be patient because of security screening. The arena can hold nearly 13,000 people for the games.
