Projection: need to automatically qualify

Alright, folks, here's the deal with Eastern Washington: To secure a dance card to the Big Dance, they'll need to prove their mettle in the conference championship. Looking at their season, they've stumbled against top competition, which reflects in their inability to pull off a win against higher-ranked out-of-conference teams. Their strength has been putting points on the board, showing some offensive firepower, but on the flip side, their defense hasn't been able to stop a nosebleed - they're letting opponents run up the score like they're giving away points for free. Not to mention, their victories have largely come against teams that aren't exactly striking fear into the hearts of their opponents. If the Eagles are eying a spot in the NCAA tournament, they've got to tighten up defensively and come out on top in the Big Sky Tournament. Anything less, and it's a no-go on the grandest stage in college hoops.
