President Obama Is Ready For March Madness
President Obama released his brackets for this year’s NCAA men’s and women’s tournament on Wednesday.
Obama used to invite ESPN to the White House every March to fill out his brackets in a segment the network called “Baracketology.” Although he didn’t join ESPN for the reveal this year, the former president and avid basketball fan released his picks through the Obama Foundation Twitter page Wednesday afternoon.

The 44th President has North Carolina beating rival Duke in the men’s championship. He has top-ranked Connecticut beating Notre Dame for the women’s championship game.
ESPN reportedly extended the offer to continue doing a bracket segment with Donald Trump now that he’s in the Oval Office. Trump respectfully declined the offer.
