Lunardi: Owls will be a No. 6 seed

Joe Lunardi moved Temple up to a No. 6 seed in the NCAA tournament in his updated Bracketology blog post.

Lunardi, a college basketball analyst for ESPN known as Joey Brackets, has the Owls facing his predicted 11th-seed Kansas State in a second-round Midwest matchup in Pittsburgh. Temple was a No. 7 seed in his last blog post.

The winner will face the winner of the No. 3 Georgetown vs. No. 14 Drexel game in the next round. Now, that would be interesting if Philly's top teams meet in the tourney.

The St. Joseph’s graduate, who does Hawks radio broadcasts, only has two Atlantic Ten teams playing in the NCAA tournament. He predicts St. Louis will be the ninth seed in the West.
