UW performs well in graduation rate report

The NCAA released its Graduation Success Rate (GSR) report for the classes of 2002-2005 in all sports and the Washington men’s basketball team fared reasonably well compared to other Pac-12 teams.
The Huskies tied for third in the conference.
The GSR report represents data from first-time freshmen, student-athletes who entered at midyear and student-athletes who transferred into Washington Minnesota between 2002 and 2005, but excludes student-athletes who transfer from the university in good academic standing.
Here is the rating of Pac-12 men’s basketball programs by GSR:
Stanford ………………. 91
Oregon ………………… 85
Washington ………….. 78
Washington State ….. 78
Utah ……………………. 73
UCLA ………………….. 70
Arizona State ……….. 67
Colorado …………….. 60
Arizona ………………. 54
California ……………. 50
Oregon State ………. 50
USC …………………… 43
THURSDAY AFTERNOON LINKS:
— Connecticut, which is banned from the postseason due to poor academic performances, had a graduation rate of 11 percent.
— Los Angeles recruit Isaac Hamilton, who is scheduled to visit Washington this weekend, is ranked No. 7 on a list of the top eight undecided recruits.
— It doesn’t appear as if UCLA forward David Wear has a high ankle sprain. He’s expected to return Monday after suffering the injury last week.
— UCLA freshman Shabazz Muhammad injured his right shoulder in Wednesday’s practice and is awaiting MRI results to determine the severity of the injury. He still has not been cleared to play by the NCAA.
— And speaking of Muhammad, he’s No. 1 in CBSSports.com’s ranking of the top 50 wings in the nation. Washington junior C.J. Wilcox is 46th. Here’s the other Pac-12 players on the list: California junior Allen Crabbe (16), Arizona senior Solomon Hill (21) and USC junior J.T. Terrell (31).
— Five years after Sean Miller recruited Mark Lyons to Xavier, the two are reunited this season at Arizona.
— The 1964 UCLA team is considered the most influential men’s basketball team, according to Alex Wolff at SI.com.
