Projection: need to automatically qualify

UC San Diego has put together a resilient season, nosing out some competitive games, but their tournament resume is missing that signature win that turns heads on the selection committee. The one-point heartbreaker against a high-caliber San Diego State team shows they can throw down with the big dogs, but moral victories don't punch tickets. Head-to-heads with UC Irvine showcased their potential, splitting the series, but inconsistencies highlighted by losses to teams like Cal Poly and CS Bakersfield raise eyebrows for the wrong reasons. To be dancing in March without sweating on Selection Sunday, they'll need to capture the Big West crown and secure the automatic bid, because their body of work might not be enough for an at-large berth.
