June 2, 2010

LOGAN, Utah - Utah State finished fifth in the Western Athletic Conference Commissioner's Cup standings it was announced by the league office Tuesday.

Highlighting Utah State's 2009-10 academic year were its track and basketball programs as USU won WAC titles in men's cross country, men's indoor and outdoor track and field, and men's basketball. USU also had second-place team finishes in women's soccer, women's cross country, and women's indoor track and field.

Boise State won the title with 92.25 points, followed by Fresno State (83.75), New Mexico State (80.75), Nevada (76.50), Utah State (74.00), Hawai'i (68.50), Idaho (68.00), Louisiana Tech (57.50) and San Jose State (51.75).

The WAC awards its Commissioner's Cup to the 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 points equal to their regular-season finish. Ties are not broken but instead are averaged between the tied teams. Affiliate members are not eligible for the Commissioner's Cup, but their standings are still used for determining points.

In its inaugural season in the WAC, Utah State finished in fourth-place in the Commissioner's Cup standings, followed by a fifth-place finish in 2007, a sixth-place finish in 2008 and a fourth-place finish in 2009.
