Projection: need to automatically qualify

Norfolk State has been riding the waves this season with some commendable highs that indicate resilience, like toppling VCU on the road, which is no simple feat given VCU's prowess, and a couple of notable dips that have left bracket observers scratching their heads, such as tripping up against Maryland Eastern Shore. Their showing against a tough Tennessee squad, while expectedly lopsided, gives them the taste of higher competition that could come in handy come tournament time. Otherwise, their performance has predominantly circled within their conference, where they've fared well but not without some near misses against teams that they'd ideally put away more convincingly. It's this lack of consistency and struggle to dominate their own backyard that keeps their projection on the edge, reliant on capturing their conference crown for a definite spot in the Big Dance. With no more big-name opponents to boost their case, their focus should be locked on sweeping through their conference tournament to solidify their position.
