President Barack Obama still believes in Kansas.

For the third straight year, Obama has filled out an NCAA tournament bracket for ESPN. He says Duke, Kansas, Ohio State and Pittsburgh will make the men's Final Four, with the Jayhawks beating the Buckeyes in the national championship game.

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

Obama also picked Kansas to win the title last season, but Northern Iowa upset the Jayhawks in the second round. Duke went on to defeat Butler for the championship.

Obama predicts Baylor, UConn, Stanford and Tennessee will advance to the Final Four in the women's tournament. His full bracket will be unveiled Friday morning.
