StatSheet projects Southern Miss on the bubble for the NCAA Tournament with potentially a 12 seed. The Golden Eagles are ranked #44 in the StatSheet StatRank with a 21-6 overall record and a 10-2 record in the C-USA.

Over the last four games, Southern Miss looked solid with wins against Texas-El Paso, East Carolina, and Tulane but also dropped one against AP #21 Memphis.

Southern Miss has a 2-5 record against the RPI Top 100 that includes an 0-3 record against the RPI Top 50 and an 0-2 record against AP ranked teams. While the Golden Eagles have no quality wins, they're dinged by a bad loss to RPI #103 UCF.

The last four teams into the NCAA Tournament with at-large bids are Alabama (18-8, 10-3 SEC, StatRank #59), Southern Miss (21-6, 10-2 C-USA, StatRank #38), Baylor (16-10, 7-6 Big 12, StatRank #59), and Ole Miss (19-7, 8-5 SEC, StatRank #57).

The first four teams out are Boise State (17-8, 5-6 Mountain West, StatRank #47), Florida State (14-12, 6-7 ACC, StatRank #85), Maryland (18-8, 6-7 ACC, StatRank #69), and Tennessee (15-10, 7-6 SEC, StatRank #74).

The next four out are Arizona State (20-7, 9-5 Pac 12, StatRank #70), Saint Mary's (22-5, 11-2 West Coast, StatRank #48), Stanford (15-11, 6-7 Pac 12, StatRank #69), and Texas A&M (16-10, 6-7 SEC, StatRank #73).
