The latest batch of APR ratings came out and the Huskies basketball team did very well. They led the conference.
Football, on the other hand, was just in the middle of the pack, finishing sixth. These APR ratings are for the 2008-12 school years.
The rate measures eligibility, graduation and retention over a four-year period.
Scores are calculated by assigning a point to each athlete per semester for remaining academically eligible and another point each semester for remaining at that school or graduating. A rate of 925, out of a highest possible score of 1,000, equates to an approximate graduation rate of 60 percent.
The overall four-year APR score across Division 1 is 974, a one-point increase from last year. A minimum four-year average score of 900, or 930 over the most recent two years, is required for postseason participation. Teams dropping below 900 over that span are subject to penalty, including loss of scholarships and postseason bans. For 2014-15 championships, teams must earn a 930 four-year average APR or a 940 average over the most recent two years to participate in championships. In 2015-16 and beyond, teams must earn a four-year APR of 930 to compete in championships.
Oregon is last in basketball with a dangerously low 918. That's just north of the penalty line.
PAc-12 teams are penalty free for next season. Since 2002-03 the NCAA has used the APR to measure academic success for student-athletes in every Division I sport.
