Alabama State Athletics posted its highest finish in all-sports competition for the 2010-11 Southwestern Athletic Conference Commissioner's Cup standings. 

The final standings were officially announced at the league's annual meetings in Houston. 

Alabama State finished second in the overall standings, named the James Frank Award for the former long-time SWAC Commissioner. The Hornets and Lady Hornets also finished in second place in both the men's all-sports and women's all-sports competitions, respectively. ASU finished second to Jackson State for all three awards.

"This was an outstanding season of competition and success for our athletic program," Alabama State Athletic Director Stacy Danley said. "A total of 17 of our 18 teams qualified to compete for conference championships, which shows the accomplishments, achievements and triumphs of our student-athletes in their fields of play. I join with President William Harris, Executive Vice President Dr. John Knight and our Board of Trustees in congratulating our talented teams, coaches and support staff for this tremendous accomplishment. Our goal is, and will always be, to make Alabama State the top athletic program in the conference. We will continue as diligently as ever in that quest." 

Alabama State's second-place finish in football and the men's basketball SWAC Tournament Championship highlighted the men's team accomplishments for the 2010-11 athletic year. It was the first football championship game appearance since the title season of 2004. Men's basketball won the conference tournament title for the second time in three seasons and earned its second NCAA Tournament appearance in that span. 

In women's competition, ASU won SWAC Championships in women's indoor track, women's outdoor track, and women's golf.  The women's track teams swept both conference titles for the second consecutive season. The women's golf team won its first ever SWAC title and made its first NCAA Tournament appearance.
