ESPN bracket guru Joe Lunardi has USC as one of his last four teams to make the NCAA Tournament.
But he has some good news for the Trojans: Lunardi said USC won’t fall out of the NCAA Tournament if it loses to Utah today in Salt Lake City. Lunardi currently has UCLA as one of his first four teams out of the tournament.
Today’s USC-UCLA game is a pick-em contest according to oddsmakers.
After all the upsets yesterday, Lunardi still has Kansas, Baylor, Gonzaga and San Diego State as No. 1 seeds. If Maryland beats Ohio State, the Terrapins would replace San Diego State as a No. 1 seed.
