Louisville made quite a rally. President Barack Obama did, too.

The president’s NCAA tournament bracket looked a lot better Sunday when he correctly picked 14 of the 16 teams to reach the regional semifinals.

After the first round, Obama ranked in the bottom 5 percent of the 5-plus million fans who entered ESPN.com’s pool. But following a strong showing in the second round, he broke into the top half _ he was in 2,167,290th place.

The only two teams he missed for the round of 16: 12th-seeded Arizona and fourth-seeded Xavier. Obama had Wake Forest and Florida State advancing that far.

Louisville came back in the final minutes to stop Siena. Obama has the Cardinals losing in the championship game to North Carolina.
