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 Iona to make the NCAA Tournament as a 15 seed. The Gaels are currently on track for an automatic bid and will need it to retain the invite as they're #98 in the StatSheet StatRank. They have a 12-6 overall record and a 6-1 record in the MAAC.

Over the last four games, Iona excelled with wins against Fairfield, Canisius, Marist, and Manhattan.

Iona has little experience against top competition, with an 0-3 record against the RPI Top 100 that includes an 0-2 record against the RPI Top 50 and no record against AP ranked teams. While the Gaels have no quality wins, they're dinged by three bad losses including RPI #275 St. Peter's, RPI #106 UIC, and RPI #257 Quinnipiac.

The last four teams into the NCAA Tournament with at-large bids are Kentucky (12-5, 3-1 SEC, StatRank #52), Texas A&M (12-5, 2-2 SEC, StatRank #59), Georgetown (12-4, 2-3 Big East, StatRank #58), and Maryland (14-4, 2-3 ACC, StatRank #67).

The first four teams out are Brigham Young (15-5, 5-1 West Coast, StatRank #40), Iowa (13-5, 2-3 Big Ten, StatRank #68), Charlotte (15-3, 3-1 A-10, StatRank #45), and St. John's (11-7, 3-3 Big East, StatRank #64).

The next four out are Alabama (11-6, 3-1 SEC, StatRank #55), Arizona State (14-4, 3-2 Pac 12, StatRank #75), Boise State (13-4, 1-2 Mountain West, StatRank #49), and Memphis (14-3, 3-0 C-USA, StatRank #50).
