StatSeed is StatSheet's postseason projections for all of Division I, including the NCAA Tournament, National Invitation Tournament (NIT), College Basketball Invitational (CBI), and the CollegeInsider.com Postseason Tournament (CIT). Read more about how StatSeed is calculated.

StatSheet projects Middle Tennessee State to be a 12 seed in the NCAA Tournament. The Blue Raiders are currently on track for an automatic bid, but don't need it to retain the invite as they're unranked in the AP Poll and sit at #31 in the StatSheet StatRank. They have a 25-4 overall record and a 17-1 record in the Sun Belt.

Over the last four games, Middle Tennessee State was dominant with wins against Louisiana-Monroe, South Alabama, Arkansas-Little Rock, and Troy.

Middle Tennessee State has a 2-3 record against the RPI Top 100 that includes an 0-3 record against the RPI Top 50 and an 0-1 record against AP ranked teams. While the Blue Raiders have no quality wins, they're dinged by a bad loss to RPI #146 Arkansas State.

The last four teams into the NCAA Tournament with at-large bids are Saint Mary's (24-5, 12-2 West Coast, StatRank #41), Tennessee (16-10, 8-6 SEC, StatRank #60), St. John's (16-10, 8-6 Big East, StatRank #56), and Ole Miss (20-7, 9-5 SEC, StatRank #59).

The first four teams out are Alabama (18-9, 10-4 SEC, StatRank #62), Baylor (16-11, 7-7 Big 12, StatRank #70), Boise State (18-8, 6-6 Mountain West, StatRank #51), and Florida State (14-12, 6-7 ACC, StatRank #81).

The next four out are Arkansas (17-10, 8-6 SEC, StatRank #74), Maryland (19-8, 7-7 ACC, StatRank #68), Stanford (16-12, 7-8 Pac 12, StatRank #66), and Temple (18-8, 7-5 A-10, StatRank #49).
