San Bruno, Calif. - With the men's and women's basketball regular seasons in the books, the West Coast Conference announces the second update of the WCC Commissioner's Cup standings. The Commissioner's Cup is an all-sports award presented at the end of each academic year to the league's top performing school in conference play. A Men's and Women's All-Sports Award, recognizing athletic achievement within each gender, will also be presented.

The recipient of the Commissioner's Cup is based on a point system, reflecting the place finish of each team in conference play. The Men's and Women's All-Sports Awards are given to the schools that accumulate the most points within each particular gender sport. The institution with the highest point total after combining the men's and women's point totals will be honored with the Commissioner's Cup. San Diego was the recipient of the Commissioner's Cup trophy last year.

With conclusion of the basketball season, Portland remains in first place after finishing second on the women's side and third on the men's. San Diego moved up to second place in the overall standings with a fourth place finish on the women's side and a fifth place showing in the men's standings. Gonzaga has jumped into third place after taking home both the men's and women's regular season titles.

As a league, the WCC's winter season was highlighted by placing five teams in the basketball postseason. For Gonzaga, both the men's and the women's teams earned automatic berths into the NCAA tournament by winning the WCC Tournament Title in Las Vegas. The Saint Mary's men participated in their first-ever NIT, while the Portland women competed in the WNIT for the first time in 10 years. The Portland men played in the postseason for the first time since 1996 by participating in the first annual Collegeinsider.com tournament.
