Presidental pick: Obama likes MSU to win NCAAs

Detroit News staff

Former President Barack Obama has made if official. His pick to win the 2018 NCAA Tournament is Michigan State.

Obama has Virginia, North Carolina, Villanova and Michigan State in his Final Four. Virginia and MSU would meet in the final with MSU winning the championship game on the night of April 2.

Being picked by Obama to win the Tournament is no doubt flattering but maybe not the best mojo for Michigan State. Obama picked MSU to get to the Final Four in 2016 but the Spartans lost in the first round to Middle Tennessee State.

Obama didn’t show as much love for Michigan. He has the Wolverines losing in the Sweet 16 to North Carolina in this year’s Tournament.
