A school earns points toward the Presidents’ Cup based upon the conference finish in each sport in which it competes. For each sport, the maximum number of points an institution can earn is equal to the number of teams competing in that sport. For sports with regular-season and conference tournament play, a school receives points based upon an average of the regular-season and conference tournament finishes. For sports with only conference championships, the finish in the championship determines the Presidents’ Cup points.
An overall rating is generated for each school which is a percentage of total points earned divided by total points possible for that school.
