Pitt hurts President Obama's bracket

WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama lost one of his Final Four teams Saturday when Butler upset top-seeded Pittsburgh.

Obama correctly predicted Florida, San Diego State, BYU and Kentucky would advance to the round of 16 after filling out a bracket for ESPN for the third straight year. He was in the 99.8th percentile among 5.9 million brackets filled out on ESPN.com.

Besides missing on Pittsburgh, Obama also lost points when Wisconsin beat Kansas State, and was already sure to lose the Richmond-Louisville game. For that Sweet 16 spot, the president had selected Louisville, which Morehead State beat in the round of 64. Overall, he has picked 34 of 40 games correctly.

Along with Pitt, Obama selected Kansas, Duke, and Ohio State to reach the Final Four, with Kansas to win it all.

All of the brackets on ESPN.com have been wrong on at least two games.
