March Madness is one of the most exhilarating sporting events in the world where anything is possible in the tournament. As future NBA stars and legends go up against each other, there are no favorites. This adds to the excitement of the tournament which makes the fans glued to their screens and even the NBA has to take a back seat in March. Another major excitement about the tournament was filling the brackets as fans predict their winners. This also includes presidential picks.

Fans started filling their brackets as the 2023 NCAA Tournament neared its start. President Joe Biden and former President Barack Obama also filled their brackets and picked their winners. As the first round is underway and with already some shockers, how did the presidential picks fare?

March Madness is off to a flying start already and the fans are all for it. Even though there are some games left in the first round, there are already a few shockers that many did not foresee. President Joe Biden wished every team good luck and presented his brackets via the official Twitter handle. Interestingly, his pick for the men’s title did not even survive the first round despite being a #2 seed. Biden chose Arizona State to win it all this year.

Unfortunately, the Sun Devils lost 59-55 to Princeton which was a 15th seed. It was Princeton’s first-ever win in the NCAA tournament since 1998 and it was an all-time upset. Not many saw this coming, including the POTUS.
