Indiana basketball’s multi-year Academic Progress Rate (APR) score continues to rise under Tom Crean, according to data released Tuesday by the NCAA. (APR scores for every NCAA institution are available here.)
Crean inherited a multi-year APR score of 866 from Kelvin Sampson and thanks to single year scores of 975 in 2008-2009, 1000 in 2009-2010 and 1000 in 2010-2011, the latest multi-year score now sits at 952.
Under new NCAA rules, the Hoosiers would have been declared ineligible for postseason play with a score of 866.
Ten men’s basketball teams, including Connecticut, were below the threshold of 900 now required to participate in postseason play. Programs with a cumulative score of under 925 can also incur other penalties.
