Louisville and Florida are among President Obama’s picks for the Final Four

McClatchy Washington BureauMarch 19, 2014 

The White House unveiled President Obama’s brackets for the NCAA men’s and women’s basketball tournaments -- and the nation’s basketball fan-in-chief has Louisville, Michigan State, Florida, and Arizona headed to the Final Four.

The White House notes that for the sixth straight year Obama also talked a little “ Barack-etology” with ESPN’s Andy Katz as he filled out his brackets.

Obama picked Michigan State Spartans for the win, defeating the Louisville Cardinals in the National Championship game on April 7.

The White House says the release of Obama's bracket last year got over 280,000 views, and was the most popular blog of the year on WhiteHouse.gov.
