Bracketologist Lunardi has EWU as No. 14 seed in NCAAs

NCAA basketball expert Joe Lunardi of ESPN has Eastern Washington as a 14th seed in the upcoming tournament, facing Utah of the Pac-12 in a second-round game.

That's down one spot from last week, when Lunardi had EWU as 13th seed - no doubt because the Eagles' computer rankings are dropping now that they no longer playing high-profile opponents.

The Eagles are 12-4 after their 89-86 win Saturday at Idaho and are alone at the top of the Big Sky Conference with a 3-0 record.

Eastern is on the road again this week, Thursday at Portland State and Saturday at Sacramento State.
