Projection: need to automatically qualify

Liberty has navigated through a season with its fair share of challenges, notably having trouble securing wins against higher-caliber opponents. Their performance outside of conference play exposed some vulnerabilities—the thrashing by Alabama highlighted a gap between them and top-tier teams, and losses to teams like Grand Canyon signaled difficulties in handling competitive mid-majors. While they pulled off a few solid victories such as Wichita State, their inconsistency within conference play, including dropped games to Western Kentucky and Florida International, puts pressure on the Flames to clinch their conference title. The team's defense has shown promise, but offensively they've struggled to make a significant impact. With an overall record sitting in the decent but unspectacular range, Liberty appears to hinge on the necessity of an automatic bid, implying that winning their conference tournament isn't just a goal—it's a requirement to dance in March.
