The Ohio Valley Conference: Inspiring Excellence Since 1948


The roots of the Ohio Valley Conference date back over 60 years to 1948, making the OVC the eighth-oldest Division I conference. Over that time period the League has inspired excellence in its student-athletes as they compete on the playing fields, excel in the classroom and then transition into being leaders in their communities.

Over the upcoming months you will see more content on how the OVC has helped inspire leaders, dreamers, scholar and champions both on and off the court.

We invite you to follow the Ohio Valley Conference (@OVCSports) and share your OVC memories that inspire you by joining the conversation on Twitter and using the #OVCinspires.  You can also like the OVC on Facebook and share your stories there.
