Clarification: NCAA Tourney Study story
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) In a story March 17, The Associated Press reported that Connecticut was one of eight schools in this year’s NCAA tournament field with an APR score that would be subject to NCAA-imposed sanctions that could keep them from postseason play. UConn’s four-year APR in basketball is currently 897. But for the 2011-12 reporting year – which was issued this past June – it was 947. Its APR for 2010-11 was 978. That gives the basketball program a two-year average of 962.5, which made them eligible for this year’s tournament.
