Projected seed: 12 (automatic qualifier)

Princeton, navigating the Ivy League with commendable success, has managed some respectable wins this season that raise eyebrows—toppling a solid Rutgers squad and repeatedly handling Ivy League adversaries like Yale and Cornell, both of whom have had their moments this year. Yet, a couple of setbacks against Yale and Cornell on the road, alongside a non-conference stumble at St Joseph's PA, suggest that while they're capable of trading blows with the mid-major's better teams, their resume lacks the high-caliber victories that would solidify them as an undeniable threat. What stands out is their proficiency at bouncing back and their capacity to avoid complacency against lesser opponents, showcasing a consistency that will intrigue as an automatic bid out of their conference could see them poised to potentially upset an unwary higher seed.
