Projected seed: 7

St. Mary's has put together a solid resume this season, boasting a signature win that catches the eye – taking a victory on the road against Gonzaga stands out as the highlight of their campaign. They've shown they can handle business against tougher opponents proven by their triumph over New Mexico, and they've been consistent against lower-tier competition, dominating teams like Pacific and Pepperdine. However, losses to Weber State and Missouri State are blemishes that raise questions, as does the inconsistency they've displayed against higher-ranked teams like San Diego State and Xavier. The Gaels have a chance to reassure doubters in the upcoming conference tournament, especially if they get another crack at Gonzaga, where a win could significantly bolster their standing or a loss, if not too damaging, at least maintains their current course. Their elite defense is a major factor that makes them a tricky matchup in March, but the offense will need to step up if they want to make a deep run.
