USI Ready to Join a Division One Conference
Wasting little time, the announcement is expected Wednesday
One day after USI’s Board of Trustees voted to move the university to the NCAA’s top division, the university said it’s ready to announce a conference partnership. WNIN’s John Gibson has the update:
USI says it will announce on Wednesday which Division One conference it will join for the 2022-23 season.
In a release, the university says it’s the next step before making a formal Division One bid to the NCAA by June 1st.
USI would start competing in Division One this fall, beginning a four-year transition process.
The Eagles would leave the Division 2 Great Lakes Valley Conference.
Two Division One spots where USI might land: the Ohio Valley Conference which is losing three teams, and the Horizon League which is losing one.
