Projection: need to automatically qualify

This team's resume doesn't suggest they're in line for an at-large bid, justifying a need for an auto-bid to punch their ticket to the dance. Several red flags here: losses to a wide array of teams indicate inconsistency, especially with setbacks against teams like Eastern Washington and Weber State, who are respectable in the Big Sky but not juggernauts on the national scene. An inability to knock off higher-ranked opponents, like Washington State and Stanford on the road, shows they might struggle against top-tier competition. The victory against UC San Diego is a bright spot, but it isn't enough to offset the slew of losses, including those at home which typically hurt a team's perception, evident in defeats at the hands of Montana and Idaho State. They will have to tear through the conference tournament with gusto and deliver an unmistakable message that they are playing their best basketball at the most crucial time of the season.
