UPDATE 3:17 p.m.: Obama was right … about basketball, anyway. Saint Mary’s beat Richmond 80 to 71. It’s the first time in 51 years that Saint Mary’s basketball team made it past the first round of the NCAA tournament.
Saint Mary’s College in Moraga is trumpeting the news that President Barack Obama picked its basketball team as the winner in today’s game with Richmond: http://www.stmarys-ca.edu/news-and-events/item.html?ID=4320
I confess, I know nothing about March madness unless it we’re talking about this month’s candidate filing and campaign finance deadlines.
But a colleague and Saint Mary’s alum tells me this selection of the winners through each step of the basketball tournament season — called brackets — is wildly popular. I’ll take his word for it.
