President Barack Obama picked Indiana to go all the way in his bracket for the 2013 NCAA men's basketball tournament. His Final Four also includes Louisville, Ohio State and Florida.

"There will be a theme here, and that is I really do think the Big Ten was far and away the best conference this year," said Obama as he filled out his bracket with ESPN. Watch him justify his choices in the video here, then check out his full bracket below, via the White House blog.
