(CNN) – President Obama turned commentator-in-chief Saturday as he addressed the performance of basketball teams from the Atlantic Coast Conference.
As he and first lady Michelle Obama were leaving the White House for Camp David, a reporter shouted out, ““Is the ACC overrated?”
“Apparently so,” Obama replied with a grin.
Obama’s sports commentary comes the morning after two ACC teams – Wake Forest and Florida State – were upset by lower-ranked schools in the NCAA tournament.
Wake Forest, a No. 4 seed, fell to Cleveland State, a No. 13 seed. Florida State, a No. 5 seed, lost in overtime to No. 12 Wisconsin.
Obama, however, picked an ACC team to win it all, predicting the University of North Carolina will beat Louisville in the championship game.
