Strong APR score for UConn

The women's basketball program was one of 20 UConn teams to score 970 or better (on a scale of 1,000) in the multi-year Academic Progress Rate and one of the 16 programs to score higher than 970 during the 2011-12 academic year.

The biggest news for UConn coming out of the APR report is that the men's basketball program is eligible for the 2014 NCAA tournament after being banned from 2013 tourney for poor APR scores.

Here are some of the highlights via an official release sent out by UConn

* The single-year score of 947 by the men’s basketball team in a season in which UConn played in the NCAA tournament, which followed a single-year score of 978 in which UConn won the NCAA national championship. UConn’s two-year score is 963.
* A multi-year score of 984 for the women's basketball team during a time period in which UConn won two national championships and played in the Final Four all four seasons.
* A multi-year score of 958 for the football team during a time period in which UConn played in bowl games in three seasons. The football team's score is 11 points higher than the average football score for all public institutions.
* A near-perfect multi-year score of 996 for the field hockey team in a period when the Huskies went to the NCAA tournament all four years and the national semifinal in 2011.
* A multi-year score of 985 for the men’s outdoor track and field team during a period when the Huskies won two Big East Championships.
* A multi-year score of 988 for the women’s indoor track and field during a time period when the Huskies won a Big East Championship.
* A perfect 1000 multi-year score for the men's cross country, women's tennis and men's golf teams and a perfect 1000 single-year score for the men’s cross country, field hockey, women’s lacrosse, women’s soccer, softball, men’s tennis, men’s outdoor track and field and women’s tennis teams.

Congratulations to all UConn Sports program for their standing in the APR.
It's a pain to meet someone elses standards but---it's important for the Connecticut's OWN university to meet those standards.
Also Congrats to Breana Stewart for being Honored in NY.
