Obama's Sweet 16: President Correctly Picks 10 Teams That Advanced To Regional Semifinals

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama has correctly picked 10 of the 16 teams that advanced to the regional semifinals in the NCAA tournament.

Obama went 5-3 on Sunday, losing when Purdue, Syracuse and Notre Dame were upset by lower seeds. He accurately predicted all four teams remaining in the West regional and got three of four right in the East.

But in the Southwest, where a string of upsets have left three double-digit seeds still standing, he has only No. 1 Kansas remaining.

Obama has three of his Final Four teams left: No. 1 seeds Ohio State, Kansas and Duke. He lost his other one Saturday when Butler upset top-seeded Pittsburgh in the Southeast regional.

Obama filled out a bracket for ESPN for the third straight year and selected Kansas to win the championship. Through the third round, he ranked 7,549th out of 5.9 million brackets filled out on ESPN.com.
