President picks UNC in pool
Nice pick, Mr. President!
North Carolina delivered the big win President Barack Obama predicted at the outset, beating Michigan State 89-72 Monday night for the NCAA championship.
Obama's bracket looked sharp after the victory -- he finished in the top 20 percent of the 5 million-plus people who entered ESPN.com's pool.
The president had dropped into the bottom half earlier in the tournament when the first three teams he forecast to reach the Final Four -- Louisville, Pittsburgh and Memphis -- lost in earlier rounds.
