President Obama's tournament bracket looking good

Siena nearly came through for President Barack Obama.

The First Fan picked the 13th-seeded Saints to beat fourth-seeded Purdue in his bracket, but the Boilermakers pulled out a 72-64 victory Friday. That was the only blemish for Obama in the eight early games on the NCAA Tournament's second day. Obama correctly predicted 12 of the 16 winners in Thursday's opening-round games.

Siena wasn't the only No. 13 seed Obama picked; he correctly chose Murray State to upset fourth-seeded Vanderbilt on Thursday.

Obama has his Final Four intact: Kansas, Kansas State, Kentucky and Villanova. He predicted North Carolina's national championship victory last year, when his bracket ranked 903,125th overall in ESPN's online contest.
