Obama is a longtime college basketball fan but he’s not a fan of upsets apparently

This year, he has Michigan State, the No. 3 seed in the Midwest Region, knocking off No. 1 overall seed Virginia in the national title game.

With March Madness about to kick into full swing and the First Four of the 2018 NCAA Tournament reaching its conclusion on Wednesday night, the First Round is set to begin on Thursday at noon for a full day of action.

Barack Obama had a TV crew in the Oval Office every March during his presidency for the grand unveiling of his March Madness brackets.

Obama has a men's Final Four of Virginia, North Carolina, Villanova and Michigan State. Former president Barack Obama has filled out NCAA tournament brackets for both the men's and women's field. There are some upsets in there including Loyola-Chicago (11) over Miami (6).

Mahmudullah blitz takes Bangladesh to tri-series final
Bangladesh won the match and knocked out Sri Lanka from the final of the tri-nation tournament which also features India. For Bangladesh , Shakib replaced left-arm quick Abu Hider, who had been expensive against India.

However, his Sweet 16 features exclusively 1-5 seeds. That one, however, was his correct national title pick: North Carolina.

Obama also has UConn, Notre Dame, Mississippi State and Louisville in the women's bracket, with UConn beating Mississippi State in the final game. And Obama has been right before - he previously picked North Carolina to win it all the year the Tar Heels took it home. The Huskies had their 111-game winning streak snapped by Mississippi State in last year's Final Four.

It's unclear whether President Donald Trump will fill out a bracket. There has been no indication he will this year, either, though a recent poll shows 38 percent of Americans would like him to do so.
