ATLANTA (AP) - Venus Williams' pick is looking pretty good.
The tennis star is using her mother's home state as a good reason to cheer for Michigan against Louisville. The Wolverines are up 38-37 at the half.
Williams said she hasn't watched much of the NCAA tournament but is pulling for Michigan because her mother was born in Saginaw, Mich.
``I'm going with her hometown,'' Williams said before the game. She is in Atlanta on Monday to promote her athletic clothing line, EleVen.
