As the president predicted, Connecticut and Pittsburgh both won Thursday night to reach the regional finals.
By going 2-for-2 in the early games, Obama moved into the top 40 percent in ESPN.com's bracket pool. Quite a comeback from his slow start, when he hit on only 19 of 32 games in the first round and ranked in the bottom 5 percent of the 5-plus million fans who entered.
Overall, Obama correctly forecast 14 of the 16 teams to make the regional semifinals. He picked Duke and Memphis to move on later Thursday night.
