President Obama Picks Indiana to Win NCAA Tournament

We have a president who absolutely loves basketball -- so of course he's going to make NCAA tournament predictions. Take that, Canada.

President Obama made his annual March Madness predictions for ESPN Tuesday. selecting Louisville, Indiana, Ohio State and Florida to reach the Final Four, with Indiana defeating Louisville for the national championship.

As for his "local" team, Obama had Georgetown bowing out to Florida in the Sweet 16.

"This one I wrestled with," he told ESPN's Andy Katz. "On the original sheet, I had this crossed off back and forth, but in the end, I think actually Florida is the stronger team."

For what it's worth, Obama hasn't had the best of luck predicting national champions. Since 2008, the only one that he has gotten correct is North Carolina in 2009.
