Projected seed: 14 (automatic qualifier)

Morehead State's performance this season isn't a real head-turner on the national stage, as they've faltered against their toughest opponents, with fairly lopsided results against the likes of Alabama and Purdue. While very close to pulling an upset at Indiana, they couldn't seal the deal, which means they lack a signature win to bolster their tournament resume. Their efficiency on defense is a silver lining, suggesting they can cause some trouble, but offensively, the numbers imply they'd struggle to keep up with high-powered offenses. Winning the Ohio Valley conference, presumably, would punch their ticket to the dance, but they'd be looking at a challenging path from the get-go. Their Cinderella story would hinge on defensive prowess and a hope for an off-night from whatever Goliath they face first.
