Great Lakes Valley Conference

From BR Bullpen


The 16-member Great Lakes Valley Conference has made its name throughout the last 27 years as a power in NCAA Division II basketball. The formation of the GLVC can be traced as far back as 1972 when the athletic directors of three member schools - Kentucky Wesleyan, Bellarmine and Indiana State University at Evansville (now the University of Southern Indiana) - began preliminary discussions about forming a basketball conference. Four years later, the University of Indianapolis and Saint Joseph's College expressed interest. On July 7, 1978, those schools - along with Ashland University - united to become the GLVC. Current member schools are located in Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, and Kentucky.

Kentucky Wesleyan College will be leaving to form the Great Midwest Athletic Conference and Northern Kentucky University will be leaving in 2012-2013 to join the Division-I Atlantic Sun Conference.
