Projection: need to automatically qualify

North Dakota's path to the Big Dance is simple: win the Summit League Tournament and punch their ticket. Despite some bright spots in conference play, the notable losses to powerhouses like Iowa and close calls with lower-tier teams have shown inconsistency. Their defeats at the hands of in-conference rivals like South Dakota State and North Dakota State have been setbacks. Nonetheless, triumphs over Oral Roberts and Missouri KC signal they can compete with peers. However, the lack of signature wins and troubles on the road, where battles are won in March, means their at-large bid hopes are slim. The team's overall performance indicates they've got the grit but might not have the resume to sway the committee without claiming the conference crown.
