StatSheet is projecting Middle Tennessee State as a 14 seed in the NCAA Tournament. The Blue Raiders are, at this point, on track for an automatic bid, and they may need to ultimately win their conference tournament as they're ranked #41 in the StatSheet StatRank. They have a 15-4 overall record and a 7-1 record in the Sun Belt.
During its last four games, Middle Tennessee State helped itself with wins against Arkansas-Little Rock, Louisiana-Monroe, Florida Atlantic, and South Alabama.
Middle Tennessee State has little experience against top competition, with a 1-3 record against the RPI Top 100 that includes a 1-2 record against the RPI Top 50 and an 0-1 record against AP ranked teams. While the Blue Raiders have a single quality win against RPI #44 Ole Miss, they're also hampered by a bad loss to RPI #200 Arkansas State.
The last four teams into the NCAA Tournament with at-large bids are Arizona State (14-3, 3-1 Pac 12, StatRank #57), Maryland (14-3, 2-2 ACC, StatRank #71), Washington (12-5, 4-0 Pac 12, StatRank #52), and La Salle (12-4, 2-1 A-10, StatRank #38).
