President Barack Obama unveiled his NCAA tournament bracket on ESPN for the sixth straight year, and the nation’s boss is predicting Michigan State will defeat Louisville in the title game.

Tom Izzo is a great tournament coach,” Obama told ESPN’s Andy Katz as he wrote in his selections at the White House. “I’ve got Michigan State going all the way. … He knows how to motivate folks and he knows how to coach. My pick: Michigan State. Bring it home for me. It’s been a while since I’ve won my pool.”

Obama’s Final Four also includes No. 1 seeds Florida and Arizona.

Obama, a graduate of Harvard Law School, predicts the 12th-seeded Crimson will open with an upset for the second straight season, knocking off fifth-seeded Cincinnati.
