The crystal ball promises the Bears won't be invited to the NCAA Tournament. In 2015.

In his not-too-early bracket for the 2015 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament, Joe Lunardi predicts the Bears won't be dancing.

Lunardi's first 2015 bracket projection includes six Pac-12 teams, but not Cal.

He has Arizona as a No. 1 seed, along with Wisconsin, Kansas and Michigan. The No. 2 seeds are Kentucky, Virginia, Duke and Villanova.

Other Pac-12 teams in his field are No. 8 seed Oregon, No. 9 Utah, No. 10 Colorado, No. 11 Stanford and No. 11 UCLA.

With Cal breaking in a new coach, there are a lot of unknowns surrounding the 201415 Golden Bears. But one thing's certainit's never too early to start predicting next season.
