Projected seed: 16 (automatic qualifier)

Lipscomb’s season is a study in contrast, where an impressive offensive display is often overshadowed by their defensive shortcomings. Their ability to post big scores, as showcased against higher-ranked opposition like Alabama A&M and Cent Arkansas, suggests they have firepower, but their defensive frailties are a glaring concern, especially highlighted in losses to teams like Stetson and North Alabama where they couldn't tighten up when needed. Noteworthy victories over schools like Florida State add a tinge of quality to their profile, yet close shaves with Tennessee State and Jacksonville underscore inconsistency. The setback against Belmont was a missed opportunity to bolster their case, reminding us that while Lipscomb can compete, they struggle to close out games against relatively stronger competition. For Lipscomb, the path to changing their fortunes significantly lies in harnessing their offensive capability while shoring up their defense, ideally demonstrated in a deep run within their conference tournament where they will not only have to prove consistency but also that they can triumph in high-pressure situations.
