Eight teams in NCAA Tournament fall below graduation standard; KU has perfect score

Central Florida’s Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sport said in its report Monday that eight NCAA Tournament teams fell below the NCAA-mandated Academic Progress Rate score of 930, equivalent to a 50 percent graduation rate. Last year, six teams didn’t reach that benchmark. According to the NCAA, Kansas is the only team in this year’s 68-team field with a perfect APR and graduation rate.
