The Gophers athletics department received passing scores – and then some – Wednesday, as the NCAA released its latest Academic Progress Rates (APR) report.
All 25 Gophers teams exceeded the 930 multi-year score required to avoid penalties such as a loss of scholarships. The men’s basketball team and men’s hockey team were among 18 Gophers programs that recorded perfect 1,000 scores for the 2012-13 school year.
The Gophers football program posted a 994 score for that year, matching its record from the previous year.
The annual APR report offers a snapshot of each program’s academic success. The latest NCAA multi-year numbers examine the school years from 2009-10 through 2012-13.
In 2009, under then-coach Tim Brewster, the Gophers football team lost three scholarships when it posted a 915 multi-year APR. The team’s latest multi-year APR score is 962, which still ranks toward the bottom of the Big Ten but is tracking up.
Here’s a link to the Gophers’ full APR release, with a breakdown for each program.
