While POTUS crowned the Villanova Wildcats on the ladies’s side, he chose some Wildcats coming from the West Shore on the males’s side.
The 2-seed Arizona Wildcats start their title mission versus 15-seed Princeton on Thursday.
Obama sharing his braces comes as little shock– it remains in maintaining with a custom the kept in mind university basketball follower started in 2009.
Obama choosing Duke to win everything in the males’s competition? That is a little bit extra unanticipated.
Fight It Out, a No. 5 seed, is the lowest-ranked group Obama has actually ever before selected to win the title. His Blue Evil ones choice notes just the 3rd time he has actually forecasted a non-No. 1 seed would certainly lower the webs in 14 events.
Nevertheless, No. 44 does have a routine of riding with seasonal giants. In those 14 males’s events, Obama chose North Carolina 3 times, Kansas 3 times, Michigan State two times, Gonzaga two times, Kentucky as soon as, Indiana as soon as and also currently Fight it out two times.

On the ladies’s side of points, Obama played it a little more secure. His champ of selection? The ruling South Carolina Gamecocks.
Obama’s ballot of self-confidence in Dawn Staley & & Co. remains in maintaining with his fad of choosing the No. 1 general seed (8 out of 13 events). While this is his 3rd time selecting the Gamecocks, his frustrating favored for many years has actually been UConn, whom he has actually chosen on 8 events.
In between the males’s and also ladies’s events, Obama has actually effectively forecasted champs 8 times given that 2009.
If you’re a Fight It Out or South Carolina follower, right here’s wishing for fortunate No. 9 (and also 10).
