STORRS, Conn. (AP) - The NCAA says that Connecticut's basketball program - already banned from the postseason for failing to meet other academic standards - has a Graduation Success Rate of just 11 percent.
The GSR, released Thursday, measures the percentage of student-athletes earning diplomas at a school over a six-year period. This year's numbers are for the classes that entered school from 2002 to 2005.
UConn's 11 percent was far below the national average of 68 percent for men's basketball.
Athletic Director Warde Manual, who took that job this year, says the school is committed to improving the program's academic performance and already has implemented changes that are designed to do that.
He pointed to improvements last year in the program's Academic Progress Rate as a sign that those changes are working.
UConn also pointed out that 14 of its 19 athletic programs have Graduation Success Rates at or above the national average.
