BRISTOL, Conn. (AP) — President Barack Obama is going with Brittney Griner and Baylor to win back-to-back titles in the NCAA women's basketball tournament.
Obama's pick was announced Friday on ESPN. In his 2013 bracket, he has Baylor defeating Notre Dame in the April 9 final in New Orleans, a repeat of last year's NCAA title matchup.
The president also selected Connecticut and California to advance to the Final Four. Baylor features 6-foot-8 dunking sensation Griner. Her team is on a 30-game winning streak after an early loss to Stanford.
Obama filled out his bracket Tuesday before departing on his Middle East trip. He picked Indiana to beat Louisville for the men's title.
Baylor, Connecticut and Notre Dame are the women's No. 1 seeds and California is a No. 2.
