UK Basketball APR And GPA > Clipped From C-J

There was some discussion about Calipari and academics this week, to wit:

 

Academic Progress Rate no problem for Cats

The NCAA made a big splash this summer when it decided to bar teams from the postseason whose four-year average in the Academic Progress Rate isn’t at least 930. Under that rule, a dozen of last year’s NCAA Tournament participants wouldn’t have been eligible, including Kansas State, Ohio State and Syracuse.

So what does Calipari think of the change?

“It’s fine,” he said. “We had a 3.14 grade-point average last term. We had 10 scholarship players, had nine over a 3.0. We had two guys who had a 4.0. This summer it was a 2.8 grade-point average. We’ve established what we are academically. I’m not bothered by it. If that’s what they choose to do, that’s fine.”

UK’s most recent four-year APR average was 974. Its four-year averages for the three previous seasons were 954, 979 and 941 — all of which would’ve been above the NCAA’s new cut line.
