Alabama teams rank among top 2 in SEC in academic measure

The NCAA has banned Alabama A&M for postseason eligibility during the 2017-18 school year in baseball, men's basketball, men's golf and women's cross country due to low Academic Progress Rate scores.

The University of Washington's average April rate for athletics rose to 991, marking the seventh consecutive year that the average rate has risen. "This total team effort shows the accomplishments that can be achieved when an academic staff, coaches, student-athletes, administration and University work together". Scores are calculated by giving each player on each team one point per semester for remaining academically eligible and another point each semester if they remain in school or graduate.

Additionally, 13 of OU's 19 athletics programs recorded a multiyear April score above the NCAA Division I national average for those sports, and five OU programs - women's basketball, women's golf, women's gymnastics, rowing and women's tennis - registered ideal multiyear April scores of 1,000 to pace the Big 12 in those sports. This year's multi-year rate was an improvement over the previous year for the fourth consecutive year.

The rating factors in eligibility, retention and graduation of each scholarship athlete, and the NCAA penalizes teams with an April of 930 or below with sanctions, which can include loss of postseason eligibility. The APR accounts for eligibility, retention and graduation and provides a measure of each team's academic performance. Jones arrived at Tennessee in December 2012 after the team posted a 909 score in 2011-12 year. Marshall also finished with 211 student-athletes on the 2015-16 C-USA Commissioner's Honor Roll, also good for second place.

The APR is based on four years of data, with the most current year's data added and the oldest year removed to create a four-year (multi-year) rolling rate. Within it, OSU's five sports with flawless scores included men's golf and four women's sports - cross country golf, soccer and tennis. When UConn's April fell below the required four-year rolling average, it was banned from postseason play in 2012-13. Of the 17 teams ineligible to participate in NCAA tournaments next year, 15 are Historically Black Colleges and Universities.

That drags the program's multiyear rate down to 934 for the last four seasons, a drop of 12 points from a year ago and close to the 930 threshold.
