After the completion of the regular season today, the seeding for the 2018 USA South Women's Basketball Tournament has been determined. The tournament consists of the top-six teams from each division in the Conference and will begin with first-round action on Wednesday, February 14 hosted by the third and fourth division seeds. The top-two divisional seeds receive first-round byes and will host quarterfinal contests on Saturday, February 17.

The semifinal and championship games will be played at the site of the highest remaining divisional seed after quarterfinal round play on Saturday and Sunday, February 24 and 25. If the highest-remaining divisional seeds are the same seed, the next tie-breaking criteria is regular season conference winning percentage. If there is still a tie, the tournament semifinals and final will head to the West due to a predetermined rotation. If Covenant College advances to the semifinals, the games will be played on Friday and Saturday, February 23 and 24.
