Temple would be the No. 11 seed in the East region if the NCAA tournament field was picked today, according to ESPN college basketball analyst Joe Lunardi.

Lunardi, known as Joey Brackets, kept the Owls (12-5) as the 11th seed for the second consecutive week despite Saturday's embarrassing 81-78 loss to struggling St. Bonaventure.

In Tuesday's updated Bracketology, Lunardi has Temple facing No. 6 seed Kansas State in a second-round game in Kansas City.

The winner will face the winner of the No. 3 Minnesota vs. No. 14 Davidson game in the next round.
