EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. — Three years of hard work and determination led William Jewell to their best week of basketball in a long time. The Cardinals began their Great Lakes Valley Conference Tournament campaign with a victory over Lindenwood in the first round on Monday, Feb. 28.

This opening round win was the first ever GLVC Tournament victory for the program since they joined the conference in 2011. On Thursday, March 3, the Cardinals were off to Illinois for the quarterfinals of the conference tournament where they faced the top seed, Southwest Baptist.
