BRISTOL, Conn. -- President Barack Obama is picking Kentucky, Ohio State, Missouri and North Carolina to reach the Final Four.
Obama filled out an NCAA tournament bracket for ESPN for the fourth straight year. On the women's side, he selected Baylor, St. John's, Connecticut and Notre Dame to advance.
A noted basketball fan, Obama took British Prime Minister David Cameron to the men's tournament's first game Tuesday night in Dayton, Ohio.
ESPN will reveal his full men's bracket today.
Kentucky and North Carolina are No. 1 seeds, while Missouri and Ohio State are seeded second in their regions. Baylor, UConn and Notre Dame are top seeds, with St. John's a No. 3 seed.
No Romney bracket
Mitt Romney clearly is not running to be the nation's top sports fan.
The GOP presidential candidate says he won't be filling out a college basketball tournament bracket, an annual tradition for millions of Americans, including President Obama.
Romney told reporters that he isn't following college basketball closely enough this year to predict which teams will make the Final Four.
and which team will win the tournament.
