Barber was caught by TV cameras saying "What ... (is) wrong with Barack Obama" to his teammates in the locker room.
Obama had picked Villanova to reach the NCAA Tournament championship game. But the Wolfpack busted the president's bracket with a 71-68 win over the Wildcats on Saturday night.
Obama correctly guessed that Villanova and N.C. State would each win its first tournament game. He picked Kentucky to win it all.
Barber later tweeted: "Good team win tonight and Yall know I loveeee Obama HONEST!!"
