This proportional symbol map is based on team success over the past decade. One point is awarded for each round a team makes during the postseason playoffs. Six points are possible if a team wins a national championship. Sixty points would be the maximum possible if a team won a title each of the 10 years.
Northwest leads the nation with 37 points, followed by Minnesota-Duluth and Minnesota State-Mankato with 20 each. Then Grand Valley State, Valdosta State and Colorado State Pueblo with 19 each. Roughly half of Division II teams, or 90/172, made the playoffs during this time period.
