President Barack Obama still hopes to reach the NCAA summit with North Carolina.
Obama was a bystander in the first semifinal Saturday, having picked neither Connecticut nor Michigan State to reach the Final Four in his tournament bracket. His big chance came when the Tar Heels played Villanova in the later game.
Obama chose North Carolina to win the national championship. His other three original choices to make the Final Four - Louisville, Pittsburgh and Memphis - all lost in earlier rounds.
Overall, Michigan State's 82-73 win left Obama in the bottom 46 percent of the 5 million-plus fans who entered ESPN.com's pool.
