President Joe Biden’s Men’s NCAA Tournament Bracket Stays Alive As UConn Tears To Sweet 16

by | Mar 29, 2024 | News

One of the United States’ biggest sporting events is underway as March Madness is in full effect for the NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association).

U.S. President Joe Biden is one of numerous celebrities whose NCAA Tournament brackets are highlighted in ‘ESPN’s Bracket Challenge’. Biden’s bracket is 82.6 percent correct, as he ranks roughly 4.6 millionth out of 22 million entries in the midst of the Sweet 16 round, which began on Thursday evening. He selected the No. 1 seed UConn Huskies as his men’s national champion, who cruised past the San Diego State Aztecs in their latest matchup. The Huskies came away with a 30-point victory margin thanks to strong performances from guards Cam Spencer, Tristen Newton, and Stephon Castle. This game marked a rematch of last year’s national championship, where the Huskies walked away victorious 76-59. His bracket shows UConn going up against the No. 1 seed, Houston Cougars, in the championship.

In the East region, Biden selected the Illinois Fighting Illini over the Iowa State Cyclones and the Huskies over the Aztecs. In the West, the president chose the North Carolina Tar Heels to take down the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Arizona Wildcats over the Clemson Tigers. He is predicting the Tar Heels will advance to the Final Four, losing to the Huskies. In the Midwest region, he hoped that the Kansas Jayhawks would defeat No. 1 seed Purdue, but the Jayhawks were defeated in the second round by Gonzaga. He selected the No. 2 seeded Tennessee Volunteers to beat the Creighton Bluejays, with the Volunteers advancing to the Final Four.

It comes as a surprise to see that Biden picked BYU to defeat the Duquesne Dukes in the Round of 64 because the Dukes were the lone tournament team in Pennsylvania. The president was born in Scranton, PA, before moving with his family to Delaware in 1953. Perhaps Biden’s most impressive prediction of the bracket comes by selecting NC State to advance to the Sweet 16 as a No. 11 seed.

As Biden’s national championship selection remains alive, the nation tunes in to watch these collegiate athletes perform on the biggest stage imaginable.
