COVID-19 continues to ruin many celebratory events, as USI will not have an induction ceremony for their 2021 Hall of Fame class.

This annoucement comes as the Screaming Eagles also had to postpone mens and womens basketball media days due to the deadly virus.

For more information about  when the Hall of Fame inductions will resume, please read the press release from USI below.

EVANSVILLE, Ind. -- University of Southern Indiana Athletics announced that it will not have a 2021 USI Athletic Hall of Fame class and induction ceremony on campus this spring due to COVID-19. The USI Athletic Hall of Fame committee said it would increase the size of classes in 2022 and 2023 to make up for the cancellation in 2021.

"The USI Athletic Hall of Fame Committee was ready to select a class for 2021 from the many outstanding candidates on the ballot this year," said Jon Mark Hall, USI Director of Athletics. "The consensus among the committee was any class which was selected deserves an induction ceremony and due to COVID-19 that was not going to happen this year.

"Our former student athletes, coaches and teams are a source of great pride for the University and everyone selected for the Hall of Fame should have their own evening to be celebrated," said Hall.

The USI Athletic Hall of Fame has inducted 94 former student athletes, coaches, administrators, and teams since 2007.

Our Tuesday was nothing short of chilly, gloomy, gray and wintry throughout the Tri-State; afternoon high temperatures only reached as high as the middle to low 30s throughout the region. Our peak temperature of 32° in Evansville was 16° below the norm for this time of the year. As for the evening ahead, cloud cover and cool air will linger - additionally, there have been reports of sporadic flurries on and off throughout the day and some portions in the Lower Ohio Valley may continue to see brief snow showers through 10 o’clock this evening. Our winds will shift southward overnight tonight into early Wednesday morning and while it won’t necessarily drive temperatures higher for the predawn hours, It will help keep temperatures from falling much further than where they currently stand. Extract the morning low temperature near 29° in Evansville as we kick off our midweek.
