UConn Offers Clarification: APR Not An Issue for 2014, 15

by Categorized: APR, UConn men's basketball

Passing this along …

An AP story this week, citing a report from the University of Central Florida’s Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sport, stated that UConn would not be eligible for the 2014 tournament under the new APR standards being phased in, because its four-year average is 897, three points short.

However, UConn responded by noting the program’s two-year average of 962 is well above the minimum 930 and thus would be eligible. Next year, UConn will have a four-year average of 936, figuring in the perfect 1,000 score of it has reported for 2012-13, and will be eligible for 2015.

Bottom line, UConn doesn’t have APR worries at the moment.
