APR numbers out, Huskies fine

The NCAA this morning released the official APR (Academic Progress Rate) numbers for the 2006-07 season and the Washington men’s basketball team recorded a score of 943, safely above the Division-I average and any risk of incurring penalties.
Here’s Washington’s full report.
The only Pac-10 men’s basketball program hit with a penalty is USC, which will be limited to 11 scholarships next year due to an APR of 863. (Here’s the page explaining USC’s penalty). (Should make clear the NCAA limit is 13 scholarships, so this would mean USC will have two fewer scholarships next season).
Here’s a list of the Pac-10 APR scores in order:
Oregon 975
UCLA 968
Stanford 954
Washington 943
Cal 942
Oregon State 935
Arizona 933
Washington State 905
Arizona State 905
USC 863
A score of 925 is the NCAA’s goal, which is says equates to a graduation rate of 60 percent. Anything below 925 can be subject to penalties, which are also based on whether students are in good academic standing when they leave (a particular issue in men’s basketball with so many departing early for the pros).
Of other in-state schools, Gonzaga recorded a 965 and Eastern Washington 898 but without being penalized.
The Division-I average for men’s basketball is 928.
Here’s a good explainer of the latest APR numbers from the NCAA.
