Projected seed: 6

Nevada's season paints a portrait of a squad that's had its ups and downs but has shown it can hold its own against respectable competition. The team's performance in non-conference play, notching a notable victory over TCU and keeping things competitive against Drake, speaks to their potential to make noise come tournament time. However, their mixed results in the Mountain West – with losses against San Diego State and New Mexico being offset by triumphs in rematches – indicate some level of inconsistency, albeit against some top-tier conference adversaries. Bonus points for resilience: the squad avenged two of their three conference losses in subsequent meetings. If they can pull off a win in their final regular-season clash against Boise State, a team hovering in the upper echelon of the conference alongside them, it would further cement their place as a team to take seriously when the brackets are drawn.
