UConn's APR for 2009-2010 was 826 and its most recent four-year rolling average, released last May, was 893. UConn expects an APR of 975 for 2010-2011 when that figure is released in May. A 975 would bring UConn to 888.5 for a four-year rolling average, below the required 900. Plus, the two-year average would be 900.5, assuming UConn does indeed get the 975. That falls well below the 930. For UConn to be eligible in 2012-13, the NCAA would have to change its method and timetable for collecting and releasing APR scores so that eligibility in 2013 is based on the scores from 2010-11 and 2011-12, instead of 2009-10 and 2010-11. That is being studied and will be discussed at the NCAA meetings in February. Scores would have to be revealed before May, as is now the case. Failing that, there also will be appeals.

That's Don Amore from the Courant discussing the new NCAA rules that were announced today. No reason to panic yet, but this isn't good.
