Written By: NM State Athletic Dept.

LAS CRUCES, N.M. - Along with celebrating the men’s basketball championship and NCAA Tournament berth, NM State has also taken over first place in the WAC Commissioner Cup standings.

The WAC awards its Commissioner's Cup to the WAC school that performs the best in each of the conference's 19 men's and women's championships. Points are awarded in order of finish, equal to the number of teams that participate in each sport and are averaged between a team’s regular season finish (if applicable) and its WAC championship finish. Teams that do not qualify for a postseason tournament due to a smaller field, receive postseason points equal to their regular-season finish.  Continue Reading This Post >>
