Barack Obama Reveals His NCAA Tournament Bracket

It's no secret that Barack Obama is a big basketball fan. Villanova and defending champion North Carolina rounded out his Final Four.

Obama also dropped his bracket for the women's NCAA Tournament as well. There are some upsets in there including Loyola-Chicago (11) over Miami (6).

Obama has Kentucky's other tournament team, Murray State, losing the first round to West Virginia.

Barack Obama is no longer president, but he's still releasing his Barack-etology every year.

Beyond a few 7-10 upsets, Obama is sticking with the chalk this year.

On the women's side, Obama has the unbeaten Huskies, the overall No 1 seed, defeating Saint Francis, Quinnipiac, Duke, and SC to reach the Final Four along with Louisville, Notre Dame and Mississippi State. He has Auburn and Tennessee advancing to the Sweet 16, but no SEC teams moving on beyond that. He also picked UConn past year to win the women's bracket. UConn beats longtime rival Notre Dame in the national semifinals and Mississippi State for the title. There has been no indication he will this year, either, though a recent poll shows 38 percent of Americans would like him to do so.
