Projected seed: 13 (automatic qualifier)

Vermont might be a sleeper team to watch due to their strong defense, showing they can grind out games when the offense isn't clicking. Notable wins against Col Charleston and Yale bolster their profile, giving hints of their potential to compete with higher caliber teams. However, losses to Virginia Tech and Colgate, along with a couple of unexpected stumbles against lower-ranked conference opponents, cast a shadow of inconsistency that could worry their fans come tournament time. The Catamounts have to tighten up as they can't afford any more bad losses, especially with conference play wrapping up. That being said, if they can continue to lean on their stingy defensive play, they stand a good chance of upsetting a higher-seeded team in the first round of the NCAA tournament.
