UConn in the clear for now, others could be in trouble for 2015 tournament

The academic progress rating (APR) can be an insanely confusing subject.

So I’ll break this down as simply as possible: UConn, banned from the tournament last year because of a low APR score, is eligible in 2014. Based on their recent scores, the Huskies look to be in good shape for 2015, too.

Some other notable programs may not be.

To qualify for the 2014 tournament, teams need a four-year APR of 900 or a two-year score of 930. But in 2015, the four-year minimum shoots up to 930 while the two-year becomes 940. The following programs, all eligible in 2014, might be in trouble for the 2015 tournament.

*Current four-year rolling APR is in parentheses; single-year scores are listed below.

    Harvard is on a bad two year trend of 923 and 919, but they have two very high years before that. A third straight bad year and they are in trouble.
