The Big South Conference announced the results for the 2023-2024 George F. 鈥淏uddy鈥 Sasser Cup Trophy on Friday morning, recognizing the top overall athletic seasons in the Big South. Charleston Southern claimed second overall in this year鈥檚 standings for just the second time ever, matching the program鈥檚 best finish which came in 1994-1995.

In 2023-2024, Charleston Southern averaged 6.65 Sasser Cup points in 15 championship sports and accumulated a total of 99.75 points based on its finish in conference regular season and championship competition. High Point won the overall title, while the Bucs were able to finish nearly a full point ahead of everyone else in the league.

The Buccaneers collected a pair of Big South Championships during the year with them coming in men鈥檚 cross country and women鈥檚 golf. Additionally, the Bucs had five runner-up finishes with them coming in women鈥檚 cross country, men鈥檚 and women鈥檚 indoor track & field, women鈥檚 outdoor track & field and women鈥檚 tennis.

The Sasser Cup Trophy is named for former Big South Commissioner Buddy Sasser (1989-96) and is awarded to the Big South member institution with the most successful year athletically, based on an average points system.  Points are awarded for both regular-season and tournament finishes in each of the League鈥檚 19 championships, and the average of the combined total is used to determine the overall point allocation in the respective sport.  One bonus point is added to the average total for each Conference Champion/AQ representative, as well as any teams that receive at-large NCAA Championships berths.  Teams tied in regular-season or tournament play split the points earned.  Each member鈥檚 overall point totals are then divided by the number of sports sponsored by that school to determine the average.
