Rock chalk, Obama picks Jayhawks 

The First Fan is a big fan of basketball programs from Kansas.

President Barack Obama predicts Kansas and Kansas State to reach the men's basketball Final Four this season, along with Kentucky and Villanova.

He's picking the Jayhawks to defeat Kentucky for the title.

Obama filled out a bracket for ESPN for the second straight year Wednesday, along with one for the women's tournament. He selected Connecticut, Notre Dame, Stanford and Tennessee to reach the Final Four in that tournament.

Last year, Obama correctly picked North Carolina to win the national championship. His bracket ranked 903,125th overall, just above the 80th percentile in the ESPN's online contest.
