Projection: need to automatically qualify

This season's results for SE Missouri State have indicated that their potential for an at-large bid is extremely unlikely, with a track record of defeats against higher-ranked opponents such as Grand Canyon and Butler revealing the gaps in both offense and defense. Although the team managed to snag narrow victories against opponents like Central Arkansas and Southern Indiana, the overall performance has been underwhelming. Losses to teams at the bottom of the rankings, like Lindenwood, exacerbate the problem, underscoring inconsistency and struggles across the board. The slim wins over lower-ranked teams aren’t enough to offset the bulk of the season’s losses, particularly when they don't include any statement victories that might catch an NCAA tournament selection committee's eye. Given these factors, it’s evident that SE Missouri State’s ticket to the dance will almost certainly hinge on winning their conference tournament and securing the automatic qualification that comes with it.
