President chooses Indiana to win NCAA title

The SportsXchange

Considering President Barack Obama hails from Illinois in Big Ten country, maybe it's not a surprise that he's picking Indiana to win the NCAA tournament.

Obama's Final Four, which was revealed Tuesday, includes Ohio State, also from the Big Ten, and Louisville and Florida.

"I'm going with Louisville. I know it's not a surprise pick," he said in a taped segment aired Wednesday on ESPN. "And I'm going with Indiana. These are the two best teams right now, and for the championship I'm going back to the Big Ten. I think this is Indiana's year."

Obama has filled out a bracket for ESPN since he took office. Last year, he correctly selected Ohio State and Kentucky to reach the Final Four but missed on his national champion, North Carolina.

In the women's NCAA tournament, Obama ticketed Baylor, Connecticut, Notre Dame and California in the Final Four.
