Obama, for the second March in a row, is making his picks known despite the fact that he's no longer in office. He has not said whether or not he will fill out a bracket for this year's tournament.

His Final Four consists of #1 Virginia vs #2 North Carolina and #1 Villanova against #3 Michigan State, with the NCAA title game pitting the Virginia Cavaliers against Tom Izzo's Michigan State Spartans.

Obama has Kentucky's other tournament team, Murray State, losing the first round to West Virginia.

Obama picked 10 correct Sweet 16 teams past year, but was 1-for-4 in the Final Four.

Obama is going with UConn, Notre Dame, Mississippi State and Louisville. UConn beats longtime rival Notre Dame in the national semifinals and Mississippi State for the title. The Huskies had their 111-game winning streak snapped by Mississippi State in last year's Final Four.

While current president Donald Trump doesn't fill out NCAA Tournament brackets, former president Barack Obama continues to participate in the annual ritual enjoyed by millions.
