ESPN.com bracketologist Joe Lunardi’s NCAA Tournament projections on Monday have Cal as a No. 8 seed, matched against Tennessee in a first-round game at Dayton, Ohio. That would mean a No. 1 seed looms in the second round, and Lunaradi is suggesting it would be Pitt.
Lunardi still has five Pac-10 teams in his field, topped by Washington and Arizona State, both as No. 5 seeds.
