President Barack Obama's picks in the NCAA tournament keep looking better and better.
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.
