Bracketology: Villanova And Temple Both Headed For #6 Seeds?

Our SBNation Bracketology expert Chris Dobbertean published his latest bracket analysis this morning and has both Temple and Villanova as six seeds. He counts Temple as a "rising" seed while Villanova is falling. He sees Nova as one of 11 teams in the Big East to make the tournament, but seven other Big East teams have higher seeds.


Temple is one of three Atlantic-10 teams he has in the tourney with Xavier as a 5 seed and Richmond as a No. 12 seed. He has Penn State as a bubble team at this point among his first eight out. That said, the Nittany Lions do host the No. 1 overall team in the country, Ohio State, tonight. A massive conference win like that could certainly vault Penn State into the tournament. This is also Penn State's senior night, so they should be super motivated for the game televised on the Big Ten Network.


His No. 1 seeds are Ohio State, Kansas, BYU and Pittsburgh.
