Projected seed: 15 (automatic qualifier)

Given Morehead State's resume, their standing is reflective of a team that can handle business within their conference but struggles against higher-tier opponents, as evidenced by lopsided losses against powerhouse programs like Alabama and Purdue early in the season. They have shown they can compete in close games, with a near-upset against Indiana illustrating their potential. However, losses to teams at the bottom of the Ohio Valley Conference have likely hurt their chances for a higher seed. Their best bet for NCAA Tournament success hinges on them winning their conference tournament to secure an automatic bid; once there, their stout defense could keep games within reach, but their offense will have to step up against the higher caliber defenses they'd face in the tourney.
