Projection: need to automatically qualify

Utah Tech's challenging season reflects a narrative of ups and downs, peppered with some bright spots but ultimately marred by inconsistency and struggles against higher-caliber opponents. Notably, defeats at the hands of nationally respected programs like Washington State and Colorado illustrated gaps in competitiveness, while the close losses to conference contenders like Grand Canyon and Seattle hinted at potential that was not consistently tapped into throughout the season. Although the wins against Utah Valley and SF Austin showcased their capability to compete with mid-tier opponents, the losses to teams like North Dakota and Idaho highlighted the unpredictability of their performance. To secure a spot in the Big Dance, Utah Tech will likely need a heroic run in the Western Athletic Conference Tournament, proving not only that they can win games but also that they can do so against the top-tier teams they'll meet in the bracket.
