Obama picks Baylor to win women’s title

– President Obama is going with Brittney Griner and Baylor to win back-to-back titles in the NCAA women’s basketball tournament.

In his 2013 bracket, he has Baylor defeating Notre Dame in the April 9 final in New Orleans, a repeat of last year’s NCAA title matchup.

The president also selected Connecticut and California to advance to the Final Four. Baylor features 6-foot-8 dunking sensation Griner, who Obama said has “just been spectacular.”

Griner’s team is on a 30-game winning streak after an early loss to Stanford.

Obama filled out his bracket Tuesday before departing on his Middle East trip. He chose Indiana to beat Louisville for the men’s title.

Obama also praised Skylar Diggins, saying the Irish guard competes with “a lot of poise, a lot of heart.”

Baylor, Connecticut and Notre Dame are the No. 1 seeds and California is a No. 2 seed. The women’s tournament starts today.
