Projection: need to automatically qualify

The projection for this team's tournament hopes is straight-forward because, realistically, the only path they have to the Big Dance is through winning their conference tournament. The regular season was lackluster, marked by a series of tough losses against both high-caliber and similarly ranked teams. Notable setbacks included a heavy defeat at the hands of a strong Indiana State squad, and tough losses within the Horizon League to teams like Wright State and Youngstown State, who have established themselves as conference heavyweights this season. Their performance against other teams closer to their own level, such as Detroit and Oakland, further underscores the challenges they've faced all season long. To punch their ticket, they must show a level of play in the conference tournament that we haven't witnessed consistently during the season. This would not only be a Cinderella story but also a radical departure from the form they've displayed up to this point.
