Sweet 16 teams also strong in aca­demics

Austin American-Statesman - - SPORTS -

Men’s and women’s bas­ket­ball teams in this year’s Sweet 16 are grad­u­at­ing more play­ers and ex­pe­ri­enc­ing all­time high aca­demic suc­cess.

The pro­grams still alive in the NCAA Tour­na­ment are en­joy­ing the best aca­demic suc­cess since The In­sti­tute for Di­ver­sity and Ethics in Sport on the Univer­sity of Cen­tral Florida cam­pus has been track­ing the num­bers, ac­cord­ing to a study it re­leased Wed­nes­day.

This year, 15 of the 16 men’s teams and all of the women’s teams that made it to the Sweet 16 have an Aca­demic Progress Rate (APR) of 960 or bet­ter.
