Projection: need to automatically qualify

Southern Utah has faced an undulating season, displaying resilience in narrow defeats against stronger opponents but having a few too many slip-ups against teams they'd likely expect to beat. Notably, taking Utah to the wire shows they can hang with more prestigious programs, but losses to teams like Northern Arizona and Utah Tech might raise eyebrows concerning consistency. Winning against teams such as Tarleton State and Abilene Christian showcases their potential but ultimately, the inconsistency on defense, highlighted by the relatively high-scoring affairs in their losses, combined with a lackluster overall record, puts them in a position where clinching the conference tournament appears to be their clearest shot at dancing in March.
