University of Southern Indiana Women's Basketball has made the decision to withdraw from the upcoming Great Lakes Valley Conference Basketball Tournament due to COVID-19.

The Screaming Eagles were the third seed in the tounament and were set to play sixth-seeded William Jewell College in the first round on Wednesday.

"Our women's basketball team has had a fantastic year and we hope that continues in the NCAA Regional Tournament next week," said USI Director of Athletics Jon Mark Hall. "Unfortunately, we will not have enough student-athletes out of our COVID-19 return to play protocol by Wednesday to participate in the GLVC Tournament.

Hall said the team originally hoped to have enough athletes available by Wednesday, but on Monday, the team realized they would not.

But the season isn't necessarily over for the squad. The Eagles, who are 11-5 this season, are among eight teams that are under consideration for selection for the NCAA II Midwest Regional March 12-13, 15. Midwest Regional selections will be announced March 7.
