Lunardi: Owls drop to six seed

Temple would be the No. 6 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, moved the 21st-ranked Owls from a No. 5 seed after Friday's 77-71 Atlantic Ten tournament quarterfinal loss to Massachusetts.

In Saturday's updated Bracketology, Lunardi has Temple facing No. 11 seed Virginia Commonwealth in a second-round game in Columbus, Ohio.

The winner will face the winner of the No. 3 Michigan vs. No. 14 Akron game in the next round.
