Former President Barack Obama has Arizona in his Final Four

At least one prominent bracket picker believes the Arizona Wildcats can find their way to Glendale for the men's Final Four.

Former U.S. President Barack Obama shared his NCAA men's and women's bracket via a tweet from the Obama Foundation Wednesday.

He picked the Wildcats to win the West before losing to Duke in the Final Four. In his bracket, heated rivals Duke and North Carolina would face off in the championship game, with the Tar Heels prevailing.

Kansas rounds out Obama's Final Four, meaning he picked two 2-seeded teams and two top-seeded teams.

Obama played it safe elsewhere in his bracket, too, with Bucknell over West Virginia as his only major upset. He picked no 12 seeds to beat fifth-seeded teams, which any good bracketeer knows is a must.

In his NCAA women's bracket, the former president picked Arizona State to win its first-round matchup over Michigan State before losing to 1-seed South Carolina.

He picked the undefeated UConn Huskies to win the women's championship.
