The NCAA thinks they do


The NCAA sponsors 19 mens and 23 womens division 1 and non-division sports in. Some of those have combined championships (like fencing) so, depending on how you count the total may be just under 40.
I may have slightly exaggerated the total number of Maryland sports. They did sponsor some sports that the ACC did not as well as some that the NCAA did not. I vaguely remember things like cheer, tumbling, mens rowing, racquetball and handball.These were listed as varsity sports, not club sports. That may have been a work-around for title IX issues.However, they still had something like 10 more sports than any other ACC school.
