Projection: need to automatically qualify

Oral Roberts' season has been a rocky road, with a more turbulent than tranquil journey through their campaign. Several close shaves against high-level opponents signal a team that can compete but often falls short when it's crunch time. Notable engagements where Oral Roberts showed glimpses of potential include tight contests against Texas A&M, Texas Tech, and Kansas State—all significantly stronger programs that didn't exactly breeze through their meetings with the Golden Eagles. However, their inability to consistently dominate lower-ranked teams within their conference, evidenced by losses to North Dakota State, Omaha, and regular-season bouts with South Dakota State, has put them in a position where there's no room for error. If they were to make waves in the NCAA tournament, they would need to punch their ticket by snagging the Summit League's automatic berth, as their overall performance hasn't been convincing enough to warrant an at-large bid.
