A record 10 men's basketball teams, including three-time national champion Connecticut, will be banned from next season's NCAA tournament because of subpar work in the classroom. UConn becomes the first "big six" school to face a postseason ban in either of the two most prominent college sports based solely on the annual Academic Progress Rate scores, which the NCAA released Wednesday.

Arkansas-Pine Bluff

I wonder how the U Con team that beat the Zags in '99 did in the classroom?

• Arkansas-Pine Bluff
• x-Cal State Bakersfield
• California-Riverside
• Connecticut
• Jacksonville State
• Mississippi Valley State
• North Carolina-Wilmington
• Texas A&M-Corpus Christi
• Toledo
• Towson

Except for UConn, that list looks like potential future GU opponents for "Senior Night". Not a lot of national men's BB horsepower there.

But on a more serious note, we already know that many young teens come from backgrounds were - for various reasons - they excel at BB but are horrible at academics. If Elite BB was not all about the 1 year "Win and Done" and was more about offering legitimate academic opportunities to young people of every background, our world would probably be a better place. Teaching an 18 year old inner city kid to read at a reasonable level at the same time you profit from his BB skills seems like a fair trade to me, but that's not the way the BB world works.

Go Bulldogs!

There is a clear solution to the academic problems at schools like Arkansas-Pine Bluff and Mississippi Valley State. Don't start the basketball team's season off with 15 consecutive road games. And if you can't afford not to do that, move to division two. Those kids spend way too much time on planes and buses and not enough time in the classroom. I blame the university more than the kids themselves. They're setting them up for failure.

toledo was once a power. the rockets i believe. towson was a shock. they are a football member of the academic oriented patriot league (as is georgetown) and they once played all the better academic schools in the east. of course if memory serves they also dominated.

Sometimes the GPAs suffer if you have more than a handful of profs who won't be intimadated into passing out unearned grades.
