Projected seed: 5 (automatic qualifier)

San Diego State has carved out a strong position heading towards the big dance, due in large part to their impressive defensive capabilities that have been a difference-maker throughout the season. Key wins over opponents like Gonzaga away from home truly illuminate the potential of this squad to not only enter the tournament but to wreak havoc once there. However, the narrow miss against Boise State and the stumble at Colorado State proved that they are vulnerable, particularly on the road against disciplined teams. With upcoming tilts at UNLV and against Boise State, the Aztecs have precious opportunities to polish their resume, potentially climbing higher with triumphs in these contests, which would reassure the committee of their stability and might even push them into a more favorable seeding conversation.
