The NCAA’s Committee on Academic Performance is wrapping up three days of meetings on Wednesday. Through days one and two, there was not even discussion of policy-change proposals, which is bad news for UConn.
Meetings on Monday and Tuesday were mostly devoted to hearings on various appeals, committee chairman Walter Harrison said. Harrison does not “expect any major policy discussions” until the CAP meets again in July.
UConn is hoping the committee will change its policy to allow schools to use the most recent academic years in applying new penalties. As it stands now, UConn is ineligible for the 2013 NCAA Tournament based on its scores from 2009-10 and 2010-11. UConn wants to use its scores from 2010-11 and 2011-12, by which it would be eligible.
However, the NCAA has said for weeks that this is not likely to happen.
