A scoring system of 10 points for 1st place, 7 points for 2nd place and 4 points for 3rd place is used to determine the All-Sports Standings for the SIAC 12-member institutions. Football is determined by their finish in the regular season and Men’s & Women’s Basketball tournament is not double elimination and does not offer a consolation game.
