The Bulldogs may have had their streak of conference championships snapped by St. Mary's, but that doesn't mean they won't be embarking on what has become an annual excursion into the NCAA Tournament. As currently situated, Lunardi has the Bulldogs as the no. 7 seed in the East Region, playing a struggling but dangerous UConn team in the first round.
Meanwhile, the Huskies are on the rise and sit as the no. 10 seed in the West Region with New Mexico in the first round. If the Huskies could pull off the upset, Missouri would await them in the second round which would be a tough way to try to get into the Sweet 16.
