Southern University's men's and women's basketball teams could be ineligible for postseason competition, the school announced during a news conference Thursday afternoon.

The university says the NCAA has requested more paperwork on academic records, some dating back five years. Until the NCAA receives the information, Southern cannot take part in post-season play. The request also affects the university's women's bowling team and both track teams.

The men's and women's basketball teams are expected to take part in the Southwestern Athletic Conference tournament in Houston starting March 11th. The NCAA tournament begins the following week.

Southern Athletics Director Dr. William Broussard says staff members are working nights and weekends to get the proper information together.
