ESPN Preseason Bracketology

+

Much like the preseason polls, Gonzaga and Saint Mary's lead the way among mid-majors in Joe Lunardi's preseason bracketology. He has the Bulldogs as a 4 seed and the WCC champions, sending them to Salt Lake City to play UAB in the First Round. Saint Mary's, meanwhile, is a 5 seed, headed to Tulsa to play the First Four winner of Notre Dame-SMU. Saint Mary's joins Rhode Island, BYU and VCU as the four mid-major at-large teams in Lunardi's preseason projection.
