Three KU teams honored


The Kansas University men’s basketball, men’s cross country and women’s cross country teams were among those recognized Wednesday by the NCAA for being among NCAA Division I teams that earned multi-year Academic Progress Rate (APR) scores in the top 10 percent of all squads in their respective sports.

All three teams had perfect multi-year scores of 1,000.

The APR provides a look at a team’s academic success each semester.

Wow, that's great! Can you tell us a little more about what the APR is?

Bill Self's basketball record is unbeleivable but I think it's even more impressive that he also makes sure all these kids are going to class & doing well academically too! I can't imagine wanting to play for any other coach.

Congrats to the cross country teams also!
