University of Connecticut Director of Athletics Warde Manuel is congratulating UConn student athletics for their scores in the NCAA’s “Academic Progress Rate” (APR) for the 2011-2012 academic year.
The NCAA on Wednesday released its annual academic progress report for the 2010-2011 academic year, and UConn, as expected, received a 978.
Big East presidents have agreed on a policy that would bar Connecticut’s men’s basketball team from next season’s conference tournament because the Huskies haven’t qualified academically for the 2013 NCAA tournament.
UConn may not find out before this summer whether the NCAA will adopt academic rules changes that would allow the Huskies men’s basketball team to qualify for the 2013 NCAA tournament.
The NCAA has turned down UConn’s proposal for self-imposed penalties for the failure of the men’s basketball team’s to meet standards for academic progress.
The University of Connecticut has proposed reducing the number of games it will play next season if the NCAA grants a waiver to allow the Huskies to play in the 2013 men’s basketball tournament.
