EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - University of Southern Indiana Men’s and Women’s Basketball have been placed on pause for the remainder of the 2020-21 regular season due to COVID-19. Both Screaming Eagles programs are scheduled resume action in the GLVC Tournament March 3 at Screaming Eagles Arena.

USI Men’s Basketball’s quarantine has been extended beyond this week’s road games (at Missouri University of Science & Technology, February 18; at Maryville University, February 20) through next week’s three home contests (versus University of Illinois Springfield, February 23; versus Lindenwood University, February 25; versus University of Missouri-St. Louis, February 27). The Eagles, who are 11-4 overall and winners of seven of their last eight games, have wrapped up the GLVC East Division and are, currently, third in the GLVC Point Ratings.
