Coastal Carolina has won or shared five Conference titles during the 2013-14 season — women’s cross country, men’s soccer, football (co-champion), women’s indoor track & field and men’s basketball.  Coastal Carolina, which was second in the standings at the conclusion of the fall season, last won the Sasser Cup in 2006-07.

In addition to the overall lead, Coastal Carolina holds the top position in the Men’s All-Sports Award race.  The Chanticleers own an average of 15.44 points for a +0.94 lead over second-place High Point (14.50).  The Panthers have a +3.15 lead over third-place Liberty (11.35).

Liberty currently leads the Women’s Sports All-Sports Award race with its 16.00 average.  The Lady Flames are ahead of Coastal Carolina (14.30) and High Point (13.80) entering the spring championship season.
