Projection: need to automatically qualify

St. Thomas MN has displayed resilience this season with a record that suggests they've held their own in the Summit League. The close loss to a high-caliber Marquette squad indicates their potential to compete with top teams. However, a series of narrow defeats against non-conference opponents like California, Cal Baptist, and losses to under-ranked conference teams like North Dakota and South Dakota underscore the Tommies' inconsistency. Their defense has been a bright spot, keeping them competitive in most contests, but their offensive challenges are apparent against stronger defenses. St. Thomas MN's best chance at making noise in the NCAA tournament is through winning the Summit League tournament, as their overall body of work lacks the signature wins and the consistent offensive production needed to secure an at-large bid. Looking ahead, the Tommies could bolster their resume with strong performances in their remaining conference matchups and a deep run in the conference tourney that showcases both their defensive mettle and an improved offensive effort.
