Barack Obama makes one last NCAA March Madness prediction as United States President. Find out which teams he picked to go all the way.

The NCAA “March Madness” turns almost every Joe in the United States into a college basketball fan — including United States President Barack Obama.

The former Illinois senator, now in his final year of his second term in office, is trying to duplicate his magic from 2009 when he selected the University of North Carolina Tar Heels as the national champions.

In the last six years, however, his selections all went by the wayside. According to Mashable, here were Obama’s previous picks to win it all, and it’s a terrible picking statistic:

2010: Kansas (lost in third round); Actual champ: Duke

2011: Kansas (lost in third round); Actual champ: Connecticut

2012: North Carolina (lost in third round); Actual champ: Kentucky

2013: Indiana (lost in third round); Actual champ: Louisville

2014: Michigan St. (lost in third round); Actual champ: Connecticut

2015: Kentucky (lost in third round); Actual champ: Duke

The common factor with Obama’s picks were that his teams all lost in the third round.

According to ESPN.com senior writer Andy Katz, the President selected Kansas University to win it all this time around against the UNC Tar Heels in the National Final in Houston. This is the third time Obama picked the Jayhawks to win it all.
