Projection: need to automatically qualify

Arkansas Little Rock's tournament chances hinge squarely on capturing the Ohio Valley Conference tournament crown to snag an automatic berth. The Trojans have not built a strong enough non-conference resume, with setbacks against Illinois Chicago and Northern Illinois, as well as a slip-up against Central Arkansas, highlighting inconsistency. Though they have secured wins against teams like Arkansas State and Morehead State, the latter being a solid victory, these are not the marquee wins needed to bolster an at-large bid. The losses within their conference, especially being swept by Georgia State, don't help their cause. Defensively, they struggle, ranking near the bottom, which could be exploited by better competition. The Trojans may have the ability to upset teams on a good day, but consistency is key, and their record shows they are prone to unexpected losses. Their path forward is clear: win the conference tournament, or bust.
