Projection: need to automatically qualify

Upon examining Abilene Christian's season, it's apparent that their performance has been a mixed bag with some commendable wins against teams like Grand Canyon and Oklahoma State contrasting with puzzling losses to lower-ranked opponents like Prairie View and Northern Arizona. The hallmark of an inconsistent team, they've displayed the ability to pull off surprises but have been equally susceptible to stumbling against teams they should handle with ease. The glaring defensive issues, as indicated by several high-scoring games allowed, do not bode well for the high-pressure environment of the NCAA tournament. The Wildcats have shown they can compete with mid-tier competition but lack the consistency needed to persuade bracketologists of their readiness to make any significant impact in the tournament. Their best bet to make noise in March would be to go on a run in their conference tournament and snatch that automatic bid, given their underwhelming non-conference performance and overall record that leaves a lot to be desired.
