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 projecting La Salle as an NCAA Tournament bubble team but likely out unless it improves. The Explorers are ranked #48 in the StatSheet StatRank with a 20-7 overall record and a 10-4 record in the A-10.

During its last four games, La Salle held its own with wins against Duquesne, Rhode Island, and St. Joseph's (PA) but also dropped one against RPI #43 Temple.

La Salle is lukewarm against top competition, with a 6-6 record against the RPI Top 100 that includes a 2-2 record against the RPI Top 50 and a 1-1 record against AP ranked teams. While the Explorers have two quality wins including RPI #33 Virginia Commonwealth and AP #20 Butler, they're also hampered by a bad loss to RPI #198 Central Connecticut State.

The last four teams into the NCAA Tournament with at-large bids are Alabama (19-10, 11-5 SEC, StatRank #61), Boise State (20-8, 8-6 Mountain West, StatRank #39), Virginia (20-8, 10-5 ACC, StatRank #58), and Baylor (17-12, 8-8 Big 12, StatRank #60).

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 #51).

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 #43).
