WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is predicting a repeat championship for Connecticut in the NCAA women’s basketball tournament.

Obama’s women’s bracket was revealed in an ESPN segment Friday, the eve of the tournament’s start.

He is putting two undefeated teams, Connecticut and Notre Dame, in the April 9th final. He has Stanford and Louisville rounding out the Final Four.

Obama says he knows it gets boring to keep picking Connecticut. But he predicts he’ll be hosting the Huskies at the White House once again.

At last year’s ceremony, the president promised Connecticut center Stefanie Dolson that he would take her on in a dance-off if she made it back.

He tells ESPN he’ll stick to the promise, “as long as it’s not televised.”
