New friends bond over their love of basketball

Nick Lachey, a die-hard Cincinnati Bearcats fan, traveled to New York to cheer his team on during the recent NCAA Big East Tournament. And while taking in the games at Madison Square Garden, the former pop star bumped into another famous basketball fan, Bill Clinton. “Ran into the best president in history at the Big East tournament. He's the best… and a HUGE bball fan!” Lachey tweeted on Wednesday as the pair posed for a photo together inside the Garden.

But the trip wasn't all play. Lachey was also in town to promote "Last One Standing," which he wrote as a tribute to the basketball tournament. The song made its national debut during the Big East Championship game. Of course, Lachey also has a wedding to plan. He became engaged to longtime girlfriend Vanessa Minnillo, 30, in November. While no wedding date has been set, his fiance isn't stressing. "We’re easy, that’s what I love about it," Minnillo told People. "Neither of us are letting [the wedding] dictate our lives. We’re gonna let it go with the flow… and I have faith in the team we put together to make it as seamless as possible." —EMILY EXTON
