Projection: need to automatically qualify

Georgia State has had a roller coaster of a season with some high points but also a fair share of troubling inconsistencies. Their non-conference record includes a tight loss to a solid Belmont squad and a rough outing against BYU where they were overmatched. The Sun Belt gauntlet offered mixed results; a split with a resilient Appalachian State and a win over Louisiana showed flashes of potential, while defeats to Troy and James Madison highlighted the Panthers' struggles against the upper echelon of the conference. Close games have been a staple for this team, as evident in narrow victories against conference foes like Arkansas State and a pair of hard-fought games with Marshall. Georgia State has shown they can compete, but the inconsistency, particularly on defense, is a barrier to predicting a deep postseason run. While they have a shot at the conference tournament title with some momentum on their side, the likelihood of securing an at-large bid is slim given the hiccups throughout their campaign. Their performance in the Sun Belt Conference tournament is paramount to their March Madness hopes; it is essentially their ticket to the dance.
