President Obama has picked the Tar Heels.
In an interview with ESPN.com, Obama said that UNC-Chapel Hill's men's basketball team will win the NCAA tournament over the Louisville Cardinals.
It was the second time he's favored the team. In March of 2008, as North Carolina's presidential primary approached, Obama told 850 The Buzz that the Tar Heels would win because of Tyler Hansbrough.
The Kansas Jayhawks ended up winning that year afer defeating Carolina in the semifinals.
"Now, for the Tar Heels that are watching, I picked you all last year — you let me down," Obama said in a TV interview. "This year, don't embarass me in front of the nation, all right? I'mcounting on you. I still got those sneakers you guys gave me."
Obama also made a bet with basketball writer Andy Katz: White House M&Ms versus an ESPN water bottle.
