North Carolina won the national championship. After the scrimmage, Obama won the state's Democratic primary, he carried North Carolina in the general election and won the White House.
Obama said everyone was excited as the champion Tar Heels visited the White House on Monday. The one exception was Obama's personal aide Reggie Love, who won a title as a player for UNC's chief rival, Duke.
Obama picked the Tar Heels to win the national championship this year. He thanked the team ``for salvaging my bracket and vindicating me before the entire nation.'' The president's other picks for the NCAA tournament's Final Four never made it that far.
