No Change in APR Timing; UConn out of Next Year's Postseason


The Committee on Academic Performance has decided not to change the timetable by which it uses APR scores to determine postseason eligibility. In other words, UConn will not be playing in next year's NCAA tournament.


UConn still disagrees with the decision -- not the intent, but simply the timing.


"We still believe there's a way for the 2011-12 scores to count for the '13 season," said UConn SID Mike Enright. "We're disappointed that didn't happen."

Here's a statement from CAP chairman Walter Harrison:

Statement from Walter Harrison
Committee on Academic Performance Reaffirms APR Timing

“During our July 12-13 meeting, the Division I Committee on Academic Performance reviewed and reaffirmed our current policies and procedures regarding Academic Progress Rate (APR) data and implementation of academic penalties and/or postseason eligibility.

“These policies were originally devised after considering several important conditions and objectives that are desired in the Division I Academic Performance Program (APP), as listed below.

1. Penalty decisions should be based on a body of data sufficient to support valid decisions;

2. Procedures should provide adequate time for a fair and deliberate process that ensures that data are correct and all waiver requests put forward by a school are given thorough review;

3. Data used in making decisions on penalties or eligibility for postseason competition should be as close as practicable in time to the implementation of those decisions; and

4. Procedures should enable consideration of student-athletes' interests in transferring if their own academic performances have been strong and they are in their last season of eligibility.

“After discussion over several meetings, the committee concluded the current process is effective and achieves a careful and appropriate balance among these factors. We expect to continue with these policies and procedures in the future.”
