Projection: need to automatically qualify

TX Southern's season has been a roller coaster with no marquee wins to hang their hat on. Their performance in non-conference play was shaky, featuring losses against high-caliber teams like New Mexico, Arizona State, Virginia, Creighton, and Purdue. Those games, while tough, could have been opportunities to make statements, but the Tigers failed to capitalize on them, as well as on winnable games like the one against Oral Roberts. Within conference play, their inconsistency continued, highlighted by splitting games with rivals, Southern University and Grambling, and dropping games against lower-ranked teams like Bethune-Cookman. The losses to teams in and around their conference level show vulnerability, and without any significant upsets or a strong showing in the season-end tournament, they appear to be a team that needs to clinch the conference title for a shot at dancing in March. The overall season performance suggests they haven't quite done enough to secure an at-large bid. A conference tournament victory stands as their clearest path to the NCAA Tournament.
