NEW YORK — With his men's bracket a bust, the president still has some hope in the women's NCAA tournament.
President Barack Obama has three of his Final Four teams remaining in the women's bracket, including Connecticut, which beat Iowa State 74-36 on Sunday for its 75th straight win. He also has Stanford and Nebraska left.
Obama didn't have either Florida State or Mississippi State in the other early game Sunday, having picked both to lose earlier in the tournament. The First Fan's bracket ranked 124,178th on ESPN.com's leaderboard, better than just 34.8 percent of users.
After his last two men's teams – Kentucky and Kansas State – were eliminated Saturday, Obama's men's bracket was at 2,111,104th, better than 55.8 percent of ESPN online ballots.
