Multiple UA teams flawless, basketball score falls in latest April

Athletic director Gene Smith left and OSU president Michael Drake right saw 14 Ohio State teams post perfect APR scores for the 2017-18 season

Rowing-which competes in the Big 12 Conference-had the second-highest multi-year score among its conference opponents (991), and men's swimming & diving had the fourth-highest multi-year score among its SEC foes (990). "The single-year number at lower-budget schools is now 969". Baseball (985) posted its best-ever April for the fifth year in a row, increasing from 949 after the 2013 season to 985 via the 2017-18 data.

The most recent statistics, released Wednesday, show the overall four-year score (ending with the 2017-18 fiscal year) matched last year's record high of 983 and that the four-year scores in football, men's basketball and women's basketball also matched last year's marks.

The NCAA says a score of 930 correlates to a 50 percent graduation rate and teams that finish below 930 can face penalties.

"I would like to congratulate the men's basketball, golf, rifle and tennis programs by posting a four-year April score of 1,000", WVU director of athletics Shane Lyons said.

This year, 22 teams face penalties, including eight facing postseason bans. In addition, 13 Tennessee teams earned a multi-year April equal to or higher than the national average of all Division I schools within that sport. "Thanks go to our coaches, who have emphasized academics as part of the "Total Gov" concept, to Katie Ethridge and her team in academic services for putting a plan in place to make sure our student-athletes are successful and of course, the student-athletes themselves for putting in the hard work of double-majoring-in academics and Division I athletics". "We've had a lot to be proud of across the board this year".

Academic Progress Rates track a program's success in the classroom by analyzing each scholarship athlete. National aggregates are based on all teams with usable data at the time of analysis.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to sell Anthony Martial for this reason
Manchester United won the Europa League in 2017 when the Red Devils beat Ajax 2-0 in the final under Solskjaer's predecessor Jose Mourinho.

"To have nine teams achieve ideal April scores is an outstanding achievement", said Auburn athletic director Allen Greene, who was hired January 2018.

Oregon's men's cross country, men's tennis, women's cross country, women's golf and women's volleyball each had ideal April scores for 2017-18.

Men's soccer and the ski programs historically have been among the university's higher academic achievers.

Neighbors' former program, Washington, had a multi-year score of 984 in the latest report, which encompasses the majority of his final three years at the school.

The Michigan State football team posted an April score of 948.

But after 13 consecutive overall record-high scores, and even before the most recent numbers covering 2013-14 through 2017-18 were released publicly, the NCAA already had started to re-evaluate its academic measurements.
