Jerry Palm, who has been making NCAA tournament predictions for nearly two decades, projects Cal as a No. 10 seed in Philadelphia with an East Regional game Friday against No. San Diego State.
The winner of that game, according to Palm, will face a likely date with No. 2 seed Duke.
Palm isn’t as excited about Saint Mary’s, whom he has playing Mississippi in one of the “First Four” games at Dayton, Ohio, with a No. 12 seed into the Midwest Regional on the line.
