STORRS, Conn. (AP) - Connecticut's men's basketball team, which was forced to sit out of last year's postseason because it failed to meet NCAA academic requirements in years past, has submitted a perfect academic progress rate for last season.
The score won't be official until the NCAA comes out with its annual academic progress report in May. But coach Kevin Ollie said Friday that they will have 1000 out of a possible 1000 points, and that is not expected to change.
UConn went 20-10 on the court during the 2012-13 basketball season and likely would have been an NCAA tournament team. But it was barred from both the Big East tournament and the NCAA tournament based on the APR scores from the 2007-08 through 2010-11 academic years.
The school implemented several changes to help improve the team's academic performance.
APR scores from the 2011-12 year, reported in May, qualified the Huskies for the upcoming postseason. The perfect score would mean they qualify academically for next season, and likely beyond.
