Summary of penalties for women’s basketball programs from the NCAA APR report
The NCAA released the latest Academic Progress Rates Wednesday. The APR monitors team academic performance. Each Division I team calculates its APR annually based on the eligibility and retention of scholarship student-athletes.
Teams scoring below 925 out of 1,000 can face penalties, such as scholarship losses and restrictions on practice and competition. Teams also can face historical-based penalties for poor academic performance over time. Rates are based on the past four years of performance.
Nicholls State University had the lowest APR of all Division I womenâ€™s basketball programs at 851. Other schools near the bottom: Alcorn State (906), McNeese State (906), Prairie View A&M University (905), Jackson State University (901) and California State University-Bakersfield (892).
The most recent APR scores are multi-year rates based on the scores from the 2005-06, 2006-07, 2007-08 and 2008-09 academic years.
