BRISTOL, Conn. (AP) -- President Barack Obama has filled in another bracket. This time, he has undefeated Baylor winning the NCAA women's tournament, with the Lady Bears beating Notre Dame in the championship game.

His bracket was revealed Friday on ESPN. In the men's field, Obama already has North Carolina defeating Kentucky in the title game.

Obama predicts Baylor's 6-foot-8 Brittney Griner will be the tournament star, saying she will probably block his shot if she visits the White House for a pickup game.

The president's Final Four includes top seeds Baylor, Notre Dame and Connecticut. But he also picked third-seeded St. John's to make it with an upset of Stanford in the Fresno regional final.

Obama has third-seeded Delaware and standout Elena Delle Donne -- of Vice President Joe Biden's home state -- defeating second-seeded Tennessee in the Des Moines regional semifinals.
