Projected seed: 11

Colorado State presents a bit of a conundrum when seeding for the Big Dance. They've got some quality wins — toppling a high-flying Creighton and dealing with San Diego State — that bolster their case. That being said, some of their losses, particularly the ones versus Utah State and Nevada, raise questions about their consistency. Their defense has proven to be a strong suit, often giving them the upper hand in crucial matchups, but the offensive numbers don't leap off the page. However, the Rams have performed well against a range of competition and their ability to handle business in some clutch games stands out. In a packed tournament field, they could be a tough out, especially if their defense locks in like it's capable of.
