Projected seed: 15 (automatic qualifier)

As we evaluate Colgate's season, we must consider the waves they've made as well as the tremors they've failed to prevent. A strong finish in the Patriot League, which is paramount for Colgate given the standard of their opposition, would be their ticket to the Big Dance. Their tight scrap with Syracuse and notable victory at Vermont are impressive marks on their resume, reflecting their ability to hold their own outside their comfort zone. However, losses to teams like Iona and Harvard, along with an expected outcome against a powerful Arizona squad, illustrate a need to tighten up the ship. The Raiders have shown defensive prowess but must exhibit consistent fire-power and grit against leading opponents to advance. In a projected lower seed position, they will need to bring their best game to make some noise in March Madness, as their journey would likely begin against a top-tier program.
