Projection: need to automatically qualify

Missouri KC's path to the Big Dance is narrow and pretty straightforward: win your conference tournament. An overall record hovering around the .500 mark doesn't scream at-large bid, especially when you couple it with a series of losses to higher-ranked non-conference opponents and no significant signature wins to brag about. The Roos' struggles against teams like Baylor, Colorado State, and Kansas illustrates a team that hasn't been up to snuff when stepping up in class. While their Summit League performances show the ability to compete within their pond, the non-conference defeats and lack of marquee victories seal the deal. It's tourney title or bust for a team in their position. Success in the Summit League tournament, though, could give them a puncher's chance when the brackets are revealed.
