Projection: need to automatically qualify

Texas State has had its ups and downs this season, and a fair look at their body of work reveals a squad that's struggled to consistently pick up signature wins. Glimmers of potential showed in close contests with high-caliber teams like James Madison, but setbacks against teams like Coastal Carolina, who've had a rough season themselves, undercut their resume significantly. The Bobcats did put together a string of solid performances in their conference tournament, which is commendable. However, that doesn't wholly mitigate the impact of their earlier losses. It's one thing to take down opponents like Southern Miss and Troy, but when push comes to shove, the lack of notable victories outside their conference is a glaring deficiency. This squad is left with no option but to clinch their conference's automatic bid to the tournament because, without it, their season's narrative is one of missed opportunities rather than triumphant moments.
