For the third consecutive year, the Kentucky men’s basketball team has posted a perfect single-year Academic Progress Rate score of 1,000, the NCAA announced Wednesday. But that wasn’t the only perfect score the Wildcats received.
The Wildcats’ four-year composite APR score was also a perfect 1,000. It marks the first time in the 12-year history of the APR that the men’s basketball team has had a perfect four-year composite score. The NCAA cut score this year was 930, and the Division I men’s basketball average score was 964.
One week ago, Kentucky received an NCAA academic award for posting an APR score that finished in the top 10 percent of Division I schools in men’s basketball. It was the second consecutive season in which the men’s basketball team had won the award.
The APR provides a real-time look at a team’s academic success by the progress of each student-athlete on scholarship. The APR scores are a four-year composite, covering the 2011-12 through 2014-15 school years, which measure eligibility, retention and graduation. The 2015-16 team will not be included until next year’s report.
