Projection: need to automatically qualify

Northwestern LA's season has been a rough ride. They've encountered numerous setbacks, particularly against higher-ranked opposition, but have also stumbled in games that were likely seen as more winnable. A consistent theme for them has been the struggle on both ends of the court, as evidenced by losses against teams like Tulane, SF Austin, and LSU. These games highlight the difficulties they've had in matching up with teams that hold a more dominant presence. Even within their own conference, the pattern persists; losses to rivals like McNeese St and Nicholls St are indicative of the hurdles they face. However, their victories against conference peers such as Houston Chr and Incarnate Word show a glimmer of what the team can accomplish when finding their rhythm. The mixed bag of results paints a picture of a team that has potential, but one that hasn't found the consistency needed to confidently project a tournament run without an automatic bid via a conference tournament championship.
