WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama is staying with defending champion Connecticut in the women’s basketball bracket.

For the second straight year, Obama has filled out an NCAA women’s tournament bracket for ESPN. He says top seeds Connecticut, Baylor, Stanford, and Tennessee will make the women’s Final Four.

Obama has the Huskies beating the Lady Bears in the national championship game.

The Huskies have won the last two national championships and lost only one game since Obama took office. That loss was to Stanford in December and snapped UConn’s 90-game winning streak.

His pick to win it all was revealed Friday on SportsCenter.

Obama correctly chose Connecticut to beat Stanford for the championship last season.

He picked Kansas to win the men’s title this year.
