Indiana finished 40th nationally, with 581.5 points, in the LEARFIELD Directors’ Cup Division I standings after the final standings update of the 2022-23 year.
The LEARFIELD Directors’ Cup was developed as a joint effort between the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA) and USA Today. The competition serves as a good measure of how Indiana stacks up against the other Division I athletic departments in the country.
Points are awarded based on each institution’s finish in NCAA Championships. Overall the Hoosiers participated in NCAA Championships in 11 sports. IU scored points in men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s swimming, baseball, men’s indoor track and field, wrestling, men’s golf, softball, women’s rowing, and men’s soccer.
Overall, 19 sports are counted in the final DI standings, four of which must be women’s volleyball and basketball and men’s basketball and baseball. The next highest (15 max.) sports scored for each institution, regardless of gender, are used in the standings.
The national top-10 and final Big Ten standings are below. IU finished with the eighth best score in the Big Ten.
