The NCAA announced today that University of Southern Indiana Men's Basketball and Women's Basketball teams are under consideration for post-season selection to the NCAA II Midwest Regionals in March. The announcement of "under consideration" has taken the place of the normal NCAA II region rankings that begin every year in February.

USI Men's Basketball (11-4) is one of eight teams under consideration for the NCAA II Midwest Regional that will be hosted at the Ford Center in Evansville, Indiana, March 13-14, 16. The Screaming Eagles were joined by fellow Great Lakes Valley Conference (GLVC) schools Truman State University, the University of Missouri-St. Louis, and Southwest Baptist University.

The Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) was represented by Ashland University, Grand Valley State University, Wayne State University, and University of Wisconsin-Parkside.

USI Women's Basketball (11-5) is one of five from the GLVC under consideration in the Midwest Region. The Eagles were joined from the GLVC by Drury University, Lewis University, UMSL, and Truman.

Of the eight women's teams under consideration, the GLIAC was represented by GVSU, Michigan Tech University, and Northwood University.

The NCAA II Women's Basketball Midwest Regional is scheduled to be hosted by Drury at the O'Reilly Family Event Center in Springfield, Missouri, March 12-13, 15. The women's basketball regional site is a change from the previously announced Ashland University this week.

The Great Midwest Athletic Conference (G-MAC), a normal member of the Midwest Region that includes Kentucky Wesleyan College, was moved to the Atlantic Region due to the COVID-19 realignment of the regions in 2020-21.

The combination of sunshine and southerly winds will make for another unseasonably warm day throughout the Ohio Valley - expect an afternoon high temperature near 69° this afternoon. Some areas could even see temperatures well into the 70s. Friday evening looks as though it will be just as pleasant; after seeing the upper 60s earlier in the day, we'll dip to 60° by 5 PM before falling towards 54° around 7 o’clock. We are however, watching a passing cold front that is expected to pass through the Tri-State late Friday evening and early Saturday morning. We won't see any rain from this front, but it will cool temperatures into the low 40s by Saturday morning.
