College Basketball Bracketology: Temple And Drexel Move Up

Drexel and Temple both ascend in the rankings with excellent play over the weekend.

In the latest SB Nation bracketology piece, Temple and Drexel see themselves rewarded for continued solid play.

Temple moved up to a No. 5 seed after being a slot below that last week. The Owls have played very well recently including an 85-72 beating of Atlantic 10 rival Xavier over the weekend. They're currently leading the conference with an 8-2 mark in the A-10.

Temple has won eight straight and has quality wins over Xavier, Duke and St. Joe's. If the Owls can finish strong, they'll be a lock for the NCAA tournament regardless of their showing in the conference tourney.

Drexel is also red-hot. The Dragons made the jump from a No. 14 seed last week to a No. 13 now. They've won 13 consecutive games and 19 of their last 20. Drexel is currently tied atop the Colonial with VCU and George Mason with identical 13-2 conference records, but has already beaten both of them.
