Barack Obama Released His Full Bracket Picks For The NCAA Tournaments

His Final Four - Virginia (1), North Carolina (2), Villanova (1) and Michigan State (3).

Obama has filled out a bracket and released it publicly since 2009, his first year in office.

In the championship game, Obama has Michigan State upsetting Viriginia, which is the top overall seed in the tournament.

Others think that he’ll continue to use the picks himself and construct a young core that can emerge after the Cavaliers vs. Fultz is an ideal scoring guard to run alongside him, and can also take over point guard duties if the Simmons experiment fails.

The 2018 NCAA Tournament's first round starts tomorrow. As friends, families, and coworkers jot down their NCAA Basketball Championships picks, we're once again sharing President Obama's bracket along with stories about how basketball is driving impactful work in communities across the country and around the world. There are some upsets in there including Loyola-Chicago (11) over Miami (6).

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. UConn beats longtime rival Notre Dame in the national semifinals and Mississippi State for the title. No. 44 made his picks for this year's tournaments public on Wednesday, and while there's little in the way of surprise on the women's side, he is rolling with a 3-seed for the men. The Huskies had their 111-game winning streak snapped by Mississippi State in last year's Final Four.

Oh, and if you were wondering, President Trump opted not to fill out a bracket a year ago.
