Projected seed: 10 (automatic qualifier)

Breaking down FL Atlantic's season, they've shown they can deliver solid wins with impressive offensive outings against high-quality opponents like Arizona—a real headline grabber—demonstrating an ability to hang with the big dogs. Their offensive metrics have proven robust, but they've been hamstrung by a defense that has occasionally been too generous, allowing close shaves against lesser-ranked teams. Yet, key victories against mid-to-high-tier opponents like Texas A&M, Virginia Tech, and SMU solidify their case, adding enough muscle to their resume to suggest they're battle-tested. The loss against Arizona should be contextualized; it's a high-scoring affair showing they can keep pace with elite programs. Their slip-ups, such as against FGCU or UAB, highlight inconsistency, which could make them a wildcard in tournament play. Moving forward, closing out the regular season with strong showings against North Texas and Memphis, two opponents with stout reputations, could significantly bolster their standing, shifting the narrative towards a more favorable seeding by showcasing both an ability to defend their home court and claw back against recent setbacks.
