Prez picks UK to reach Final Four


President Barack Obama predicts Kansas, Kansas State, Kentucky and Villanova to make the men’s basketball Final Four.

Obama filled out a bracket for ESPN for the second straight year. This time, he’s also making picks for the women’s tournament, selecting Connecticut, Notre Dame, Stanford and Tennessee.

ESPN will reveal the full brackets Wednesday. His interview about the men’s tournament will air that day during the 12 p.m. SportsCenter, with the discussion of the women’s tourney broadcast Friday during the 9 a.m. show.

Last year, Obama correctly picked North Carolina to win the national championship. His bracket ranked 903,125th overall, just above the 80th percentile in the ESPN’s online contest.
