Barack Obama reveals his picks for the 2018 NCAA Tournament


The 44th President of the United States picked Michigan State to win the 2018 NCAA Tournament in a bracket posted Wednesday afternoon.

President Donald Trump declined to publicly fill out a bracket last year and it's not clear if he will do one this year.

Obama, whose NCAA Tournament bracket became an annual segment on ESPN, has Kentucky losing to Arizona in the second round of the tournament.

Barack Obama thinks the Big Ten's national championship drought is about to come to an end. There are some upsets in there including Loyola-Chicago (11) over Miami (6).

Beyond a few 7-10 upsets, Obama is sticking with the chalk this year.

Obama has a men's Final Four of Virginia, North Carolina, Villanova and Michigan State.

The former leader of the free world was for the most part feeling chalky this year, as he picked two 1-seeds - Virginia and Villanova - plus North Carolina, a 2-seed, to make the Final Four. UConn beats longtime rival Notre Dame in the national semifinals and Mississippi State for the title.

Obama then picks NMSU to lose to Auburn in the round-of-32.

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