Projection: need to automatically qualify

This team's season has been a rollercoaster with no significant upswings to offset the rough patches. While clutch wins against Morehead St offered flashes of potential, losses to fellow bottom-tier teams like SE Missouri St and E Illinois are giant red flags. They have stumbled against strong opponents, highlighted by a definitive loss at Dayton, which could've been a statement game. Inconsistency has been a thorn in their side, and the lack of any marquee victories leaves their resume looking very thin. Defensively, there is some ground to stand on, but both the offense and defense rankings are insufficient to inspire confidence. Without a formidable record against highly regarded teams, this squad's only shot at dancing in March is to snag their conference tournament title and the automatic bid that comes with it.
