President Obama picks UConn women to win ninth NCAA title
The UConn women's basketball team is one of the favorites to reach the women's Final Four in Nashville, and President Obama believes the unbeaten Huskies have the goods to win it all.
Obama picked UConn (34-0) to win its ninth NCAA title when he completed his women's bracket on Friday with ESPN's Rebecca Lobo, a member of the Huskies' first NCAA champion team in 1995.
He picked UConn to beat fellow undefeated Notre Dame (33-0) in the final. He previously picked No. 2 seed Stanford and No. 3 Louisville to reach the Final Four. Louisville made the final as a No. 5 seed last year before losing to UConn.
Obama picked Baylor to win last year, but the Lady Bears were upset in the Sweet 16.
The Huskies have won 40 games in a row, which is the third-longest streak in school history.
