Basketball: Lunardi boosts Bears to No. 6 seed

ESPN “bracketologist” Joe Lunardi updated his NCAA Tournament projections today, moving Cal to a No. 6 seed in the South Region, matching the Bears against No. 11 Florida in a first-round game at Miami. Now what kind of advantage would that be for the higher seed, playing a team from Florida in Florida?

Of course, with UCLA looming Saturday evening, Lunardi’s projection for Cal is certain to be different by Monday.
