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 now projects Robert Morris to be a 15 seed in the NCAA Tournament. The Colonials are, at this point, on track for an automatic bid, and they will need to win their conference tournament as they're #100 in the StatSheet StatRank. They have a 22-9 overall record and a 14-4 record in the NEC.

Over the last four games, Robert Morris excelled with wins against Central Connecticut State, Bryant, Fairleigh Dickinson, and Monmouth.

Robert Morris has little experience against top competition, with a 1-2 record against the RPI Top 100 but no record against the RPI Top 50 or AP Top 25. While the Colonials have no quality wins, they're hampered by seven bad losses including RPI #190 Quinnipiac, RPI #213 St. Francis (NY), RPI #198 Central Connecticut State, RPI #151 Bryant, and RPI #142 Savannah State.

The last four teams into the NCAA Tournament with at-large bids are Alabama (19-10, 11-5 SEC, StatRank #60), Boise State (20-8, 8-6 Mountain West, StatRank #40), Virginia (20-8, 10-5 ACC, StatRank #58), and Baylor (17-12, 8-8 Big 12, StatRank #59).

The first four teams out are Maryland (20-9, 8-8 ACC, StatRank #70), St. John's (16-12, 8-8 Big East, StatRank #72), Southern Miss (22-7, 11-3 Conference USA, StatRank #46), and Temple (21-8, 9-5 A-10, StatRank #50).

The next four out are Arkansas (18-11, 9-7 SEC, StatRank #71), California (20-9, 12-5 Pac-12, StatRank #41), La Salle (20-7, 10-4 A-10, StatRank #45), and Wichita State (24-7, 12-6 Missouri Valley, StatRank #44).
