Projection: need to automatically qualify

Alcorn State's season has been a bumpy ride, reflecting a team that's faced its share of challenges, particularly in non-conference play with matchups that have exposed some glaring weaknesses. The Braves' performances against higher caliber teams like Michigan State, TCU, Clemson, and Maryland have shown they struggle to keep pace with top-tier competition, which has impacted their overall resume. However, they've fared better within their conference, securing some crucial wins. That being said, the narrow victories and losses against opponents far down the pecking order suggest that they lack the consistency and firepower to be a threat without securing the automatic bid that comes with a conference tournament championship. Their lack of a signature win and the defeats against the likes of Jackson State and Southern University underscore the need for a strong showing in their conference tournament to have any chance of dancing come March.
