UW ranks second in Pac-12 in APR

The Washington men’s basketball team received high marks among Pac-12 squads when the NCAA released its annual APR report today.
According to a UW press release, the Academic Progress Rate (APR) is a term-by-term measure of eligibility and retention for Division I student-athletes that was developed as an early indicator of eventual graduation rates. It provides a real-time look at a team’s academic success each quarter by tracking the academic progress of each student-athlete on scholarship. The APR accounts for eligibility, retention and graduation and provides a measure of each team’s academic performance.
The most recent APRs are multi-year rates based on scores from the 2007-08, 2008-09, 2009-10 and 2010-11 academic years.
Next season, 10 Division I schools are banned from post-season competition because of low APRs, including Washington opponent Connecticut.
Here’s how the Pac-12 schools rank:
Stanford ……………… 989
Washington …………. 979
Arizona ……………….. 975
Arizona State ……….. 968
Washington State ….. 961
USC …………………….. 960
California ……………… 950
Oregon State ………… 948
UCLA……………………. 942
Oregon ………………… 926
