Projection: need to automatically qualify

For North Alabama, the prospect of receiving an at-large bid to the Big Dance is beyond reach. The Lions have shown flashes of potential, notably pushing a solid Kansas State to the brink, suggesting that they can compete with higher-tier teams. However, the losses to opponents like Tennessee Tech and Central Arkansas, who are generally not considered strong teams, significantly tarnish their resume. The defense has been a major issue, reflected in high-scoring affairs that have gone the wrong way, complicating their path to a more favorable assessment. Ultimately, what this tells us is that North Alabama's road to March Madness hinges solely on the necessity of winning their conference tournament—a task that would not only require a string of their best performances but also a consistency they've struggled to maintain throughout the season.
