Projection: need to automatically qualify

Tennessee St’s run this season hasn't been enough to secure them a comfortable spot for an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament. Their key non-conference games against higher competition ended in losses, without any signature wins to bolster their resume. The losses to Oregon, Indiana St, Liberty, and even close games with lower-ranked teams like Alabama A&M and Southern Indiana show inconsistency. In-conference play offered opportunities to make a statement, but splits with Austin Peay and Morehead St plus a loss to W Illinois late in the season don't convey the dominance needed to sway the committee. Without a strong showing in their tournament, relying on an automatic bid is their primary path to the Big Dance.
