Uconn hoops perfect

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
