Uconn hoops perfect

Sat., Oct. 12, 2013

The Connecticut men’s basketball team, forced to sit out last year’s postseason because it failed to meet NCAA academic requirements in years past, has submitted a perfect academic progress rate for the 2012-13 school year. It won’t be official until the NCAA announces its annual academic progress report in May. But coach Kevin Ollie said Friday it’s not expected to change. “We got a thousand,” said Ollie of the numerical perfect score UConn expects to receive. “If you want to wait until May, you can find out in May. But it’s a thousand.” UConn was 20-10 in 2012-13 and likely would have been an NCAA tournament team. But it was barred from both the Big East and NCAA tournaments based on the APR scores from the 2007-08 through 2010-11 academic years. – Associated Press
