President Obama called Hawaii’s upset win over Cal

Friday March 18th, 2016

Barack Obama's bracket may have been as uninventive as usual, but the one big upset pick he made turned out to be a great choice.

The only seed lower than 10 Obama picked to win in the first round was No. 13 Hawaii against No. 4 Cal.

It looks like Obama wrote down Cal first before changing his might, but we never should have thought he'd pick against his home state.

Sure enough, the Rainbow Warriors came out on top, 77–66, and celebrated with a synchronized dab.
