Study: Top NCAA Seeds Lag Academically

Item: Study: Top NCAA seeds lag academically/Associated Press

More Info: North Carolina was the only school among the four No. 1 seeds in the NCAA men’s tournament to graduate at least 50 percent of its players. A report released Monday found 86 percent of Tar Heels men’s players earned diplomas during a six-year period. The other top seeds were far worse: 45 percent at Kansas and 40 percent at UCLA and Memphis.

Question: Does it matter to you that the nation’s top college basketball teams are more interested in what players do on the court than in the classroom?
