In 2015, President Barack Obama selected the Villanova Wildcats to make the NCAA Tournament Final and ultimately lose to Kentucky. On Wednesday Obama sat down with Andy Katz of ESPN and the POTUS was not so high on the 'Cats.

This year the President selected 'Nova to make it to the Elite 8, losing to Kansas who will ultimately defeat Michigan State to win the Championship.

"Although 'Nova is a quality team, I'm going with the Jayhawks."

In his previous seven brackets, President Obama has correctly selected the champion only once- when North Carolina won in 2009.
