Barack Obama isn’t President of the United States anymore, but he’s still filling out brackets. And he loves the Arizona Wildcats.
Obama released a pair of NCAA Tournament projections — one men’s, one women’s — through his foundation on Wednesday. The brackets are below:
Obama picks the No. 2-seed Arizona Wildcats to get past North Dakota on Thursday in Salt Lake City, then beat VCU in the round of 32, Florida State in the Sweet 16 and Notre Dame in the Elite Eight. Arizona’s run will end in the national semifinals, according to Obama’s picks: The former president has picked Duke to top the UA, then fall to North Carolina in the national championship game.
Obama famously filled out his NCAA Tournament brackets during his presidency, often inviting ESPN to televise his selection process. (You can read, seriously, an analysis of his picks here.)
President Donald Trump said that he will not fill out a bracket.
