WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama and his family are spending a long weekend at the presidential retreat at Camp David, Md.

Obama has no public events on his schedule, but is undoubtedly keeping up with the NCAA basketball tournament. He’s a major hoops fan and has picked the University of North Carolina of the Atlantic Coast Conference to win it.

As Obama boarded Marine One at the White House Saturday, a reporter shouted out, “Is the ACC overrated?” The president answered, “Apparently so,” evidently referring to Cleveland State’s upset of Wake Forest Friday night.

Back in Washington Monday, the president begins another busy week pushing his plans for fixing the economy, including a personal pitch to Senate Democrats.
