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 is now projecting Bryant to make the NCAA Tournament as a 16 seed. The Bulldogs are currently on track for an automatic bid and will need it to retain the invite as they're ranked #124 in the StatSheet StatRank. They have a 16-6 overall record and a 9-2 record in the NEC.

During its last four games, Bryant was steady with wins against St. Francis (NY), Monmouth, and Fairleigh Dickinson but also stumbled with a bad loss to RPI #211 Long Island.

Bryant has little experience against top competition, with a 1-2 record against the RPI Top 100 that includes an 0-1 record against the RPI Top 50 and AP Top 25. While the Bulldogs have no quality wins, they're hampered by four bad losses including RPI #211 Long Island, RPI #191 Sacred Heart, RPI #319 Navy, and RPI #209 Yale.

The last four teams into the NCAA Tournament with at-large bids are Stanford (14-9, 5-5 Pac 12, StatRank #62), Florida State (13-9, 5-4 ACC, StatRank #59), Southern Miss (18-5, 7-1 C-USA, StatRank #43), and Wichita State (19-5, 8-4 Missouri Valley, StatRank #37).

The first four teams out are Rutgers (12-9, 3-7 Big East, StatRank #71), Saint Mary's (20-4, 9-1 West Coast, StatRank #47), Texas A&M (14-8, 4-5 SEC, StatRank #74), and Virginia Commonwealth (18-5, 6-2 A-10, StatRank #48).

The next four out are Indiana State (15-8, 8-4 Missouri Valley, StatRank #38), Charlotte (17-5, 5-3 A-10, StatRank #54), Saint Louis (17-5, 6-2 A-10, StatRank #58), and Villanova (14-9, 5-5 Big East, StatRank #67).
