Projection: need to automatically qualify

Despite CS Sacramento's struggles throughout the season, the recent string of victories in their conference tournament could be a glimmer of promise. Their overall performance has been turbulent, with losses against stalwarts like Nevada, and faltering against teams like Idaho and Idaho State that they should have had the edge over. However, they have shown resilience by pulling off a win against UC Davis on the road and finishing strong with a series of wins culminating in the conference tournament. Their defensive metrics have been a silver lining, but in order to make noise in the NCAA tournament, they'd need to ride this late momentum and secure an automatic bid through their conference tournament, as their season record and metrics don't pave the way for an at-large bid. The team illustrates the volatile nature of college basketball where an end-of-season surge could transform into a Cinderella story, but without that tournament crown, their chances remain slim.
