Projection: need to automatically qualify

This St. Thomas squad has shown resilience and a knack for competition, particularly within its own conference, but it's clear that their tournament hopes are pinned on securing the Summit League's automatic bid. The Tommies’ non-conference performance lacked significant standout wins and included several close losses to mid-tier opponents. Notably, their narrow defeat at Marquette hints at the potential to challenge top-tier teams, yet losses to lower-ranked teams like Cal Poly and South Dakota raise questions. On the defensive end, they've been more consistent, which they've leaned on to keep games within reach. To solidify their case, the Tommies need to capture their conference tournament; otherwise, an at-large bid remains a long shot due to their middling performance out of conference and lack of marque victories.
