Lunardi: Temple will be a seven seed

Joe Lunardi predicts Temple will receive the NCAA tournament’s No. 7 seed in the West in his updated Bracketology blog post.

Lunardi, a college basketball analyst for ESPN known as Joey Brackets, has the Owls facing his predicted 10th-seed Kansas State in their second-round matchup in Greensboro, N.C.

The winner will face the winner of the No. 2 North Carolina vs. No. 15 Drexel game in the next round. Now, that would be interesting if Philly's top teams meet in the tourney.

St. Joseph’s graduate, who does Hawks radio broadcasts, has a total of three Atlantic Ten teams advancing to the tournament. He predicts St. Louis will be the 11th seed in the South, while Xavier will be 12th in the East.

How many City Six teams will get an NCAA bid?
One. And that would be Temple.
Two. Temple and Drexel.
Three. By virtue of some surprise from the other four.
