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 projects Northeastern as a 16 seed in the NCAA Tournament. The Huskies are currently on track for an automatic bid and will need it to retain the invite as they're sitting at #121 in the StatSheet StatRank. They have a 17-9 overall record and a 12-2 record in the CAA.

Over the last four games, Northeastern was solid in wins against William & Mary, Old Dominion, and Hofstra but also suffered some damage with a bad loss to RPI #141 Delaware.

Northeastern has little experience against top competition, with a 1-3 record against the RPI Top 100 that includes a 1-2 record against the RPI Top 50 and no record against AP ranked teams. While the Huskies have a single quality win against RPI #25 Belmont, they're also hampered by six bad losses including RPI #141 Delaware, RPI #230 Georgia State, RPI #161 UAB, RPI #157 North Carolina-Asheville, and RPI #271 Maine.

The last four teams into the NCAA Tournament with at-large bids are Stanford (15-9, 6-5 Pac 12, StatRank #55), Virginia (18-6, 8-3 ACC, StatRank #81), California (14-9, 6-5 Pac 12, StatRank #59), and Creighton (20-6, 9-5 Missouri Valley, StatRank #50).

The first four teams out are Arizona State (18-7, 7-5 Pac 12, StatRank #80), Charlotte (18-6, 6-4 A-10, StatRank #47), Southern Miss (18-6, 7-2 C-USA, StatRank #45), and Villanova (15-10, 6-6 Big East, StatRank #71).

The next four out are Boise State (16-7, 4-5 Mountain West, StatRank #41), Saint Mary's (21-4, 10-1 West Coast, StatRank #49), Temple (16-7, 5-4 A-10, StatRank #39), and Texas A&M (15-9, 5-6 SEC, StatRank #68).
