UCLA Facing an NCAA Tournament Ban

  1. The UCLA men’s basketball program is desperate to get back on track under new head coach Mick Cronin, but that will be awfully difficult to do if the team is banned from the NCAA Tournament in future seasons.

    According to Jon Wilner of the Bay Area News Group, the latest Academic Progress Rate (APR) scores that were released by the NCAA last week show that UCLA is dangerously close to being below the 930-point threshold, which would trigger a postseason ban. UCLA’s latest score was the worst in the Pac-12 at 933. If the multi-year score that is released next spring dips below 930, the Bruins would be ruled ineligible for the NCAA Tournament in 2021.

  2. Nah...Rest assured that UCLA boosters have a whole host of cash and nerdy undergrads ready and waiting to fix this
  3. How do schools who lose their players to the NBA stay above the threshold? If you go pro does that not count against a school?
  4. They adjust for players in good academic standing who leave school early for a professional career. They do the same for players who transfer to another school while meeting the minimum academic eligibility standards. There’s also an adjustment for players who finish their degree later.
  5. Schools like Duke can come up with 2 semesters of "Fun with music" "Playing with numbers" and "Reading is fun".
  6. No institution really stepped up to condemn UNC from an academic perspective after two decades of academic fraud because they all do it to some extent. Too much money at stake.
