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 Louisiana Tech to be a 13 seed in the NCAA Tournament. The Bulldogs are currently on track for an automatic bid and might need it to retain the invite as they're unranked in the AP Poll and sit at #37 in the StatSheet StatRank. They have a 26-5 overall record and a 16-2 record in the WAC.

During the last four games, Louisiana Tech grabbed wins against San Jose State and Utah State but also struggled with losses to RPI #57 Denver and RPI #59 New Mexico State.

Louisiana Tech has a 3-4 record against the RPI Top 100 that includes a 1-0 record against the RPI Top 50 but no record against AP ranked teams. While the Bulldogs have a single quality win against RPI #38 Southern Miss, they're also weighed down by two bad losses including RPI #242 McNeese State and RPI #101 Northwestern State.

The last four teams into the NCAA Tournament with at-large bids are Alabama (20-11, 12-6 SEC, StatRank #63), La Salle (21-8, 11-5 A-10, StatRank #41), Baylor (18-13, 9-9 Big 12, StatRank #61), and Ole Miss (23-8, 12-6 SEC, StatRank #56).

The first four teams out are Iowa (20-11, 9-9 Big Ten, StatRank #75), Southern Miss (23-8, 12-4 Conference USA, StatRank #47), Virginia (21-10, 11-7 ACC, StatRank #63), and Wichita State (26-8, 12-6 Missouri Valley, StatRank #33).

The next four out are Arkansas (19-12, 10-8 SEC, StatRank #78), California (20-10, 12-6 Pac-12, StatRank #46), Providence (17-13, 9-9 Big East, StatRank #83), and St. John's (16-14, 8-10 Big East, StatRank #79).
