Projection: need to automatically qualify

Quinnipiac has put together a respectable season, yet they have a profile that screams the need for an automatic bid to punch their ticket to the dance. Their overall record might look enticing at first glance, but digging deeper, we notice the absence of those signature wins that could make their case for an at-large bid. The losses to teams like Canisius, Niagara, and Fairfield are particularly concerning, as these are games a tournament hopeful should be clinching. Additionally, the losses to stronger opponents like Massachusetts and Yale signify missed opportunities to bolster their resume. On top of that, their defensive metrics are worrisome, indicative of a team that could struggle against the multidimensional offenses often seen in the NCAA tournament. While there's still a chance to improve their standing with key games remaining against Iona and Siena, it's essential for them to not only win out but to also capture their conference tournament to secure a no-questions-asked spot in March Madness.
