Obama’s NCAA Champion Pick Revealed

Obama’s NCAA Champion Pick Revealed, President Obama is choosing experience over youth in his NCAA bracket, picking North Carolina to win the men’s basketball tournament in a championship matchup with Kentucky.
“I’m just a sucker for the Tar Heels, what can I tell you?” Obama told ESPN’s Andy Katz during his traditional selection special on ESPN.
The sports network revealed Obama’s full tournament bracket on “SportsCenter” on Wednesday morning, for a segment it has come to call “Barack-etology.” Tuesday it announced that Obama had chosen Ohio State and Missouri along with North Carolina and Kentucky to make the Final Four.
Three of those four are schools in swing states, and in the final game Obama opted for the swing state school over the deeply red state Kentucky. Obama’s nominating convention this summer will be held in North Carolina.
Obama, though, offered no hint that politics was playing into his choices. The Wildcats, he said, are a “talented team.”
But North Carolina is “an older team, a more experienced team. And since they won it for me last time the last time I picked them, hopefully I’ll be able to get a little redemption,” Obama said.
