Projected seed: 14 (automatic qualifier)

High Point has put together an impressive string of wins, but the lack of high-quality opponents tempers expectations. Highlight wins against teams like W Carolina and UNC Asheville show they can handle mid-tier competition, and playing teams like Georgia close is encouraging. However, slim victories and losses to lower-ranked teams like SC Upstate and Presybyterian and the absence of signature wins against top-tier programs could hold them back. Above all, the glaring weakness in their defensive metrics suggests they may struggle against the more balanced offenses they'll encounter in the tournament. However, their high-powered offense could make them a tough out and potentially prime them for an upset if they catch fire at the right time.
