Bracketology 2012: Temple Projected As No. 9 Seed

The Temple Owls are projected as a No. 9 seed in the latest version of Bracketology.

Conference play has started, which means the NCAA tournament is on the way, which means it's time to begin weekly updates on Bracketology 2012.

Chris Dobbertean, SB Nation's leading Bracketologist, began his weekly projections of the 68-team NCAA Tournament field on Monday. The dust has not settled and the winds of the NCAA men's basketball regular season could still result in plenty of change by the time March Madness arrives, but Dobbertean currently projects the Temple Owls as a No. 9 seed in the East Regional.

The Owls had a letdown after beating Duke Wednesday night, falling to conference foe Dayton Saturday. Temple took a 60-53 lead with eight minutes remaining, but Dayton went on an 18-2 run to seize the lead for good. Khalif Wyatt scored a career high 28 points, but he could not prevent the loss that ended Temple's 25-game winning streak at the Liacouras Center.

St. Joseph's was projected in the Bracketology as one of the top eight teams left out of the bracket.
