The former president tweeted out his brackets for both the men's and women's tournaments on Wednesday, picking Michigan State to win the men's basketball title and UConn for the women's title.

First came the preseason NIT tournament.

On the women's side, Obama has the unbeaten overall No. 1 seed Huskies reaching the Final Four along with fellow No. 1 seeds Louisville, Notre Dame and Mississippi State. The Cavaliers lost to No.7 Michigan State as a No.2 seed in 2015, and they didn't reach the tournament's second weekend as a No.5 seed previous year.

Sports fans can also catch every game on the March Madness Live app which is available for download on iOS, Android, Windows, Amazon, Roku, Apple TV and Amazon Fire TV.

Some in Russian Federation have suggested that the nerve agent could have come from another former Soviet country. The White House also issued a statement that the USA "stands in solidarity with its closest ally".

It's normal to see No. 1 and No. 2 seeds fall after the first and second rounds as the competition really starts to heat up, but perhaps this year is unlike any other when there is not a consensus, No. 1 favorite to win it all. In 2014, head coach Jay Wright's team was knocked out of the tournament as a No.2 seed in the second round. For reference, 13.73 percent of brackets picked Virginia to win the championship.

Ten teams have better odds than Xavier, who is the fourth No.1 seed.

The Tar Heels are the defending champions, and they were the NCAA runners-up in 2016. And that's before playing two more good teams in San Antonio. Duke won the 2015 national championship.

Along with Michigan State, Obama has picked North Carolina, Virginia and Villanova to make the Final Four, with the Spartans prevailing over Virginia in the final.
