MAAC Commissioner's Cup

The Commissioner's Cup is awarded annually as a symbol of overall excellence in athletics in the 24 championship athletic events conducted within the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference.

Marist's Success
Marist has captured 12 overall Commissioner's Cups since joining the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference in 1998. Marist is the first school in the history of the MAAC to sweep all three categories (overall, men's and women's), five times. In total the Red Foxes have won 30 Commissioner's Cups:


(8): 1999, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2013


(11): 2001, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2016


(12): 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2010, 2011, 2013, 2014

For sports without a championship event or a regular-season required schedule, points are assigned based on the number of competing varsity teams. Each team receives points based on its finish, with the last place team receiving one point and the champion receiving a bonus point. Teams that are tied by record or point total in standings shall split the points for those positions, regardless of any further tie-breaking procedures. In sports with associate members, points will be distributed based solely on the finish of the core MAAC teams. The bonus point for the first-place finish will only be awarded if the team actually won the MAAC championship.

For sports with a required regular-season schedule and four-team tournament participation, points are awarded for regular-season performance as indicated above. Championship participants earn additional points in the following schedule: 5-3-2-1. In sports with just semifinals and finals, it is 5-3-1.5-1.5.

For sports with required regular-season scheduling and full tournament participation, points are awarded for regular-season performance and tournament finish. This system is used primarily for men's and women's basketball as well as teams that participate in championship events at Disney's Wide World of Sports Complex.
