BYU edged out San Diego to win the 2012-13 West Coast Conference Commissioner's Cup, breaking a Torero run of five consecutive trophies..

The Cougars collected 78 points, while San Diego had 74. Saint Mary's was third with 65.5 points.

The WCC 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 and is based on a point system, reflecting the finish of each team in conference play. The institution with the highest point total after combining the men's and women's point totals is honored with the Commissioner's Cup. This is the Cougars' first season winning the award since entering the conference in 2011.

"It's a great privilege for me to represent Brigham Young University in receiving this Commissioner's Cup," BYU President Cecil O. Samuelson said. "All of the credit goes to Tom [Holmoe], Janie [Penfield], the rest of their great staff and our terrific coaches and particularly the hundreds of outstanding young student-athletes who represent not only athletics but themselves and their families in a very positive way."

BYU won the women's division with 42 points, helped out by women's soccer and women's volleyball conference titles, and the men's division with 36 points.
