UConn’s latest graduation success rate? 11%. Yuck
You know how UConn won’t be playing in the Big East tournament this season? And how there is no chance that they’ll make a trip to the NCAA tournament this year? And how Alex Oriakhi is at Missouri this season?
Well, all of that can be traced by to UConn’s APR scores.
Now, the APR isn’t perfect -- far from it, actually -- but it is the way the NCAA measures academic strength within a program, and by just about any measure, UConn’s academics were an issue.
And now it looks like academics may end up joining recruiting violations, stolen laptops and failed bike rides as the last legacies from Jim Calhoun’s tenure in Storrs. From the CT Post:
11% is not good.
What is good, for UConn fans at least, is that this won’t affect their postseason standing at all.
