Bracketology 2012: Temple Confident, Drexel Barely In In Current Projection

Things didn't shake out according to plan for Drexel in the CAA conference tournament, as VCU captured the crown and the automatic invite to the NCAA tournament. That leaves the Dragons hopeful that their fortunes will turn and they'll be invited to the Big Dance come Sunday.

According to SB Nation's Chris Dobbertean's latest bracketology projection, Drexel will in fact make the tournament, earning a spot in one of the "first four" matchups. Dobbertean has Drexel playing Northwestern in the West Regional 13 seed "first four" game, which will be played next Tuesday night in Dayton, Ohio.

And while Drexel checks in on Dobbertean's list of last four teams in, Temple sits pretty as a four seed in the Midwest region. Dobbertean has Temple pegged for a first round matchup against Southern Conference champion Davidson in Portland. Temple plays UMass in the quarterfinals of the A-10 Tournament on Friday afternoon.

For all of the latest Temple news, check out our team page, and do the same for Drexel. Be sure to keep checking back on Dobbertean's Bracketology post, as he'll continue to update it throughout the week leading up to Selection Sunday.
