UCONN ban to become official

uconn basketball 2013 ncaa tournament ban

STORRS, Conn. (AP) - Connecticut athletic director Warde Manuel says he holds out little hope the NCAA will change its reporting requirements in time for UConn to qualify academically for the 2013 NCAA tournament.

The NCAA on Wednesday released its annual academic progress report for the 2010-2011 academic year, and UConn, as expected, received a 978.

That is not high enough to qualify for the tournament. The NCAA requires a 900 average over four years or a 930 over two years. Connecticut's four-year score is 889 and its two-year average is 902.

Manuel says the school is still urging the NCAA to use data from 2011-12, something he says would make the school eligible.

The NCAA's Committee on Academic Performance is expected to discuss that at a meeting next month.
