Projection: need to automatically qualify

Tennessee Tech's path to March Madness is clear cut: secure an automatic bid by winning the Ohio Valley Conference Tournament, as their regular season performance does not make a compelling case for an at-large selection. A spate of tough losses, especially against the higher-ranked teams in their own conference like Morehead State, indicate struggles in games that matter the most. Their ability to occasionally pull out a close win, for example against Tennessee State, is overshadowed by substantial defeats to teams such as Murray State and blowouts against stronger competition, notably Tennessee. This squad will have to pull together for a surprise tournament run if they aim to dance in March, focusing on shoring up their defensive efforts and finding a way to bolster an offense that has sputtered against upper-tier defenses they've faced this season.
