Projected seed: 8

Colorado State has built its case on a solid overall record, anchored with overtones of resilience and opportunism. They have claimed some strong victories, notably toppling San Diego State, always a stingy adversary, and a critical win against Creighton—these are résumé highlights that shine bright in the eyes of the committee. Their other important conference wins against potential tournament-bound teams like New Mexico and Nevada show they can handle pressure. Yet, they've shown some vulnerability on the road with losses against Utah State and Nevada, places where true contenders need to be stout. While their offense might not be the flashiest, they boast a robust defense that keeps them grounded in challenging contests. With no bad losses and several quality wins, they've done enough to sway the scales in their favor for a decent seeding. The Mountain West Conference has proven to be competitive at the top this year, and Colorado State has shown they belong in that conversation, but they'll need to ensure they carry that grit into the tournament where every possession gets magnified.
