Projection: next four out

With tournament resumes, it's a mixed bag for Mississippi. They grabbed some attention with notable wins against Alabama and Mississippi State, showcasing they can hang with some heavy hitters. However, losses to LSU and South Carolina put a dent in their profile. Also, their fortunes against highly ranked teams such as Tennessee, Auburn, and Kentucky didn't pan out, which highlights inconsistencies. On the bright side, the victory over a solid Memphis team adds a little luster. The key down the stretch for Mississippi will be to capitalize on their remaining opportunities, particularly against a formidable Texas A&M, which could serve as a pivotal moment to improve their standing. Their successes against middle-of-the-pack teams are fine, but for a serious tournament consideration, those high-profile wins are gold, and missing out on too many of them leaves them on the shaky ground in the bracket discussion.
