Back in the day (circa the late '90's, early 2000's), the Great Lakes Valley Conference Men's and Women's Basketball Tournament was a yearly event at Roberts Stadium and hosted some great games between local rivals, USI and Kentucky Wesleyan. After a few years away, its set to make its return to Evansville.
