Dust off the dancin’ shoes

With First Four finished, here’s your top tournament teams, players, stats
In this season of parity, Peyton Siva and No. 1-overall seed Louisville hardly are a slam dunk for the NCAA Division I title. They play North Carolina A&T today.
Gonzaga’s Kelly Olynyk, the long-armed 7-footer from Canada, is long on talent. He will have a highlight dunk or two, count on it, when the Bulldogs play Southern University today at the NCAA tournament.
The return of Ryan Kelly makes the Duke Blue Devils a tough matchup for anybody in the Big Dance.
The Big Dance floor – this one in Salt Lake City – beckons. March Madness gets going in full today.
Obama taps Indiana to fill champion slot

BRISTOL, Conn. – President Barack Obama is picking Indiana to go all the way in the NCAA men’s basketball tournament.

ESPN revealed Wednesday that Obama picked the Hoosiers to win it all in his 2013 bracket. He predicted Louisville, Ohio State and Florida would round out the Final Four.

Obama has made an annual tradition of giving his bracket predictions to ESPN but only correctly picked the winner once – North Carolina in 2009.

He said he thinks he can do better in his second term.

This time, Obama repeatedly advanced teams from the Big Ten.

But “I think this is Indiana’s year,” he said.

The Hoosiers play James Madison at 2:10 p.m. Friday.

Obama filled out the bracket Tuesday at the White House, before departing on a trip to the Middle East.

On the women’s side, Obama selected Baylor, California, UConn and Notre Dame to advance to New Orleans. Baylor, UConn and Notre Dame are all No. 1 seeds and California is a No. 2 seed.
