A-10 Average APR Rises, Ranks Fifth Nationally

Release: 05/15/2014
Send this article to a friend Print RSS

INDIANAPOLIS – The Atlantic 10 Conference ranks tied for fifth amongst 32 Division I Conferences in the Academic Progress Rate (APR) data released by the NCAA on Wednesday. The league average is a 984, marking the fourth consecutive year the A-10’s average APR has risen.

In addition to its overall success, A-10 men’s basketball programs rank in a tie for sixth among the 32 Division I Conferences.  Seven of the Atlantic 10 men’s basketball teams exceeded the national average for men’s hoops.

As a whole, 141 Atlantic 10 Conference teams met or exceeded the national average of their respective sports, 37 of them with perfect scores of 1000.

In women’s indoor track, each of the 11 league members exceeded the national average, while 10 of 11 outdoor women’s track teams met or were over the average.  Six of eight women’s lacrosse programs surpassed the national average, while 11-of-12 women's cross country teams and seven women’s swimming squads were also above the average in their respective sports.

Every NCAA Division I team calculates its APR each academic year. Scholarship student-athletes each semester receive one point for remaining eligible and one point for staying in school or graduating. Teams scoring below certain thresholds can face consequences, including practice restrictions and playing season reductions. Rates are an average of the past four years’ performance. National aggregates are based on all teams with usable data at the time of analysis. 

The most recent four-year Division I APR is 976, a two-point improvement from last year. The average four-year rate also rose two points in baseball (967) and football (951), five points in men’s basketball (957) and one point in women’s basketball (973).

Wednesday’s data comes on the heels of last week’s announcement that the A-10 had 58 of its teams earn national recognition from the NCAA in the Academic Progress Rate (APR). The 58 programs, which is the most for the A-10 since 2010, ranked in the top 10 percent of their respective sports in APR scores compiled through the 2012-13 academic year.
