Projected seed: 11 (automatic qualifier)

Grand Canyon's resume for the tournament paints the picture of a dominant force within their conference but also proves they can hold their own with those in more prominent leagues. This season, noteworthy wins against San Francisco and San Diego State showcase their ability to compete and win against higher competition, signaling their potential to cause trouble for favored teams in March. The loss to South Carolina was competitive, suggesting that Grand Canyon can hang tight with quality programs. Yet, the slip-ups against Seattle and Tarleton State raise a few eyebrows, indicating some consistency issues. Their performance in these games may raise some doubts, but overall, the Antelopes have done enough, particularly through a strong finish to the season, to earn a spot in the tourney where an upset is always within the realm of possibility if they can leverage their big-game experience and maintain their composure under pressure.
