Western Kentucky has clinched their 6th Bubas Cup this season, their last in the Sun Belt Conference. The Bubas Cup, named for the SBC’s first commissioner, Vic Bubas, is the all-sports championship that is given to the conference school that accumulates the most points throughout the athletic year based on its finish in the league standings in each sport. It was announced today via wkusports.com

“I congratulate our coaches and student-athletes on winning the 2014 Bubas Cup,” Director of Athletics Todd Stewart told the website. This marks WKU’s 6th Bubas Cup since joining the Sun Belt Conference back in 1982

WKU won Sun Belt Conference championships in soccer, volleyball, women’s basketball, women’s indoor track and field and women’s outdoor track and field in 2013-14, with baseball still to be completed. With men’s and women’s swimming competing in Conference USA in 2013-14, WKU won the Bubas Cup with only 17 sports scoring points towards the total.

In total, 10 WKU teams finished in the top-three of their respective league standings in 2013-14.
