No. 7 seed UConn upset No. 4 seed Michigan State 60-54 to claim the East region and reach the Final Four of the NCAA tournament on Sunday -- a result that hurt President Barack Obama's bracket.
Not long after the win, UConn posted a message to Obama on its Twitter account inviting him to start cheering for the Huskies.
Obama is a huge basketball fan and makes his picks public each year. This year he had Michigan State winning the title over defending champ Louisville. Both have been eliminated in Elite Eight games. In fact, only one of Obama's Final Four teams actually made the semifinals. No. 1 overall seed Florida won the south region.
