Projected seed: 4

Auburn has had a solid season, handling their business against lower-ranked teams and securing big wins against tough opponents. Despite dropping games to high-caliber teams like Alabama and Tennessee, they've shown resilience with a commanding win over Alabama in a later matchup, and a consistent ability to rack up points against strong defenses. The team boasts a balanced attack that is adept at both ends of the court, reflected in strong performances against teams like South Carolina and Mississippi State at home. Their ability to rebound after losses, especially in a competitive Southeastern conference, demonstrates a tenacity that would serve them well during the tournament's high-pressure environment. The upcoming games against Missouri and Georgia present opportunities to further solidify their tournament resume, but they must take care not to slip up late in the season against lower-tier teams, which could negatively impact their overall tournament positioning. Their offensive prowess combined with a fairly solid defensive ability creates a profile that could potentially carry them deep into March, assuming they maintain their form and capitalize on these right opportunities.
