Barack Obama is no longer the president, but that hasn’t stopped Obama from sticking with his habit of filling out a public NCAA Tournament bracket. The 44th president of the United States had differing views on the South Carolina basketball teams heading into March.
He picked the Gamecocks men’s team to lose in the first round to Marquette. But feels more confident in what South Carolina’s women’s team can do in the NCAA Tournament, picking the Gamecocks to advance all the way to the Final Four.

Obama has North Carolina winning the men’s national title and UConn winning another title on the women’s side.
Both teams open the NCAA Tournament on Friday, with the men playing against Marquette at 9;50 p.m. in Greenville and the women playing at 4:30 p.m. against UNC-Asheville at Colonial Life Arena.
