Even though the days of Barack-etology on ESPN are over, former President Barack Obama is still making his picks for the NCAA Tournament public. Villanova and defending champion North Carolina rounded out his Final Four. The Huskies had their 111-game winning streak snapped by Mississippi State in last year's Final Four.

Of course, President Obama went to Harvard. but they suck at basketball and didn't make the NCAA tourney.

Obama picked the Spartans to beat No. 1 overall seed Virginia in the title game. Then he has Michigan State topping Villanova in the national semifinals and Virginia, the tournament's top seed, for the national championship.

Over in the women's bracket, Obama has UConn going all the way, beating Mississippi State in the championship game.

The picks were posted on Wednesday on the Obama Foundation's website and by Obama on Twitter.

Obama filled out a bracket every year that he was in office.

It should be noted that past year Obama correctly picked North Carolina and UConn as the men's and women's champions.

He declined an invitation past year from ESPN to do so on-air, as Obama did during his presidency.
