How Idaho fared in the APR

The Idaho men's basketball program scored a perfect 1,000 in the latest year of the NCAA's Academic Progress Rates that were unveiled today — one of two single-year perfect scores for UI athletic programs. The women's golf team had the other 1,000 for 2012-2013.

That's the good APR-related news for Idaho. The bad news came nearly three weeks ago, when UI announced its football team was ineligible for the 2014 postseason and would lose four hours of practice time each week because of a four-year APR score of 901, well below the 930 threshold. Idaho's 2012-2013 score was 838.

Even with a projected 960 in 2013-2014, Idaho would be below a four-year score of 930 next year. Yet athletic director Rob Spear has said that he expects the school won't get dinged again in 2015 because it will have shown substantial progress.

To be postseason eligible, teams must have a four-year score above 930 or have an average above 940 the last two years.

The men's basketball team had a four-year APR of 944. That's slightly below its last two rolling four-year scores.
