Obama tweets brackets, picks Spartans, UConn

He may not be in office any more, but that didn’t stop Barack Obama from sharing his NCAA tournament brackets.

The former president tweeted out his brackets for both the men’s and women’s tournaments on Wednesday, picking Michigan State to win the men’s basketball title and UConn for the women’s title.

“Just because I have more time to watch games doesn’t mean my picks will be better, but here are my brackets this year,” Obama wrote in the tweet.

His Final Four on the men’s side also includes defending national champion North Carolina (who he correctly picked to win the 2017 tournament), Villanova and Virginia. This year he has the Spartans beating Virginia for the national championship.

On the women’s side, Obama has the unbeaten overall No. 1 seed Huskies reaching the Final Four along with fellow No. 1 seeds Louisville, Notre Dame and Mississippi State. In his bracket, UConn (who he also picked last year) wins their 12th national title with a revenge victory over Mississippi State, who beat them in last year’s Final Four.

The former president’s picks were also posted Wednesday on the Obama Foundation’s website.

President Donald Trump declined ESPN’s invitation to fill out a bracket last year and it’s unclear whether he will do so again this year.
