For UConn, No Decision On APR “Logistics”

by Categorized: APR, NCAA, UConn men's basketball

The NCAA’s Committee on Academic Performance met on Monday to discuss using more recent scores to determine its APR penalties. The committee, UConn has been told, made no decisions, no changes, but will discuss the matter again in the future. Presumably,  that means the next meeting in April.

“The CAP discussed the topic today but took no action,” said NCAA spokesman Erik Christianson. “It will continue the dialogue at future meetings.”

 No news was bad news for UConn.

So for UConn, nothing changes, they remain ineligible for the 2013 Tournament on the basis of an 826 APR score for the 2009-2010 academic year, coupled with whatever they scored in 2010-11, which even if perfect would not raise their two-year average to the needed 930.

The CAP has been weighing the possibility of using the most recent academic years, which would probably put UConn in the tournament, using 2010-11 and 2011-12 scores. There are “logistic” problems with doing this, because not all schools use two-semester format and academic years begin and end on different dates.

No word yet on whether the CAP’s sub-committee on appeals has begun considering UConn’s application for a waiver, which was denied by the NCAA last week.

For now, UConn has to worry about making the 2012 Tournament, which means beating Villanova in a couple of hours.

    Why would we expect them to make a fair decision and count the last two years scores. They couldn’t screw UConn taking two scholarships so let’s change the rules and not count the 2010-2012 APR. How dare UConn win the national championship. We will make them pay for winning it. Nice job Mark Emmert.

      I don’t actually fully understand how I ended up here, but I thought this post was very good. I really do not know who you are but certainly you’re likely to a prominent blogger if you are not by now

      it would seem like your webpage ate my 1st comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I uploaded and say, I’m totally enjoying your web page. I too am an aspiring web site blogger but I’m still completely new to the whole thing. Do you have any valuable hints for novice blog authors? I’d absolutely appreciate it.I heard somebody talking about this on the radio yesterday, but I can’t remember what station it was.
