Projection: need to automatically qualify

Given the season's performance, especially with a subpar overall record and struggles in key matchups, the Fresno State Bulldogs have a mountain to climb if they're aiming for an NCAA tournament bid. Challenges against high-caliber opponents like San Diego State, Nevada, and Boise State have exposed the team's weaknesses on both ends of the court, and these conference rivals have comfortably handled the Bulldogs in head-to-head matchups. Their defense has shown some promise in isolated cases, but the offense hasn't been consistent enough to outgun the more robust teams they've faced. The Bulldogs' best shot at dancing in March would be through an automatic bid by winning their conference tournament, where they would need to string together an exceptional series of games and likely best some of the very teams that have dominated them during the regular season.
