Grad rates out, UW fares well

The annual graduation rate reports for all sports were released today by the NCAA and they show good news for the Huskies.
Here’s a good overview of what the rates are and of the national perspective so I don’t have to repeat all of that here.
Most relevant in this space is that UW fared well in both of the major men’s sports, ranking first in men’s basketball and second in football among Pac-10 schools.
Again, remember these are four-class averages for players who initially enrolled from 1997-2000.
So for football, that’s two classes of players brought in by Jim Lambright and two brought in by Rick Neuheisel. For basketball, those are all classes recruited by Bob Bender. However, the coaches who followed them also deserve some credit for the numbers as the players are allowed six years to graduate for inclusion in these stats.
Here’s the Pac-10 ratings for football in that span:
Stanford 93
Washington 64
Oregon State 62
Washington State 58
USC 57
UCLA 56
Arizona State 55
Oregon 55
Cal 52
Arizona 41
Here’s men’s basketball:
Washington 70
Stanford 67
Oregon 59
Oregon State 50
Arizona State 42
UCLA 40
WSU 35
Cal 33
USC 29
Arizona 25
Particularly in basketball, numbers can be easily skewed by a few players leaving early for the NBA and not getting their degrees, which is why Stanford has a lower number than you might expect and partly why Arizona and UCLA are so low, as well.
You can find lots more info here at NCAA.org.
The UW women’s basketball team also had a 100 percent rate, all classes brought in by former coach June Daugherty.
