NCAA’s new APR report shows athletes’ scores remain steady

To compete in 2019-20 postseason action, teams must achieve a 930 four-year April.

Michigan State is one of just six Division 1 men's basketball programs to post four straight flawless April scores, along with Belmont, Bucknell, Elon, Kentucky and West Virginia.

In the April, each scholarship athlete receives one point per semester for being academically eligible and another point each semester for remaining in school or graduating.

The overall score of 983 - covering 2014-15 through 2017-18 and released Wednesday - matched last year's record high. A team's total points are divided by points possible and then multiplied by 1,000 to equal the team's April score.

Football's April score jumped from 978 in 2016-17 to 993 in the most recent period. The program had ideal single-year scores in the two previous reporting periods under former coach Mike Anderson. Savannah State baseball and football are also ineligible, however, SSU is dropping down to D2 next season. UO football's four-year April is eighth in the Pac-12 with Washington (991), Utah (989), Stanford (986) and Arizona State (980) as the only Pac-12 schools with multi-year scores above 980 in football.

Morris' former school, SMU, has a multi-year score of 967, which encompasses all of Morris' three seasons with the program, plus partial academic years under other head coaches.

Also in the multi-year data, 14 Tennessee teams tied or improved their scores from last year's cohort: baseball, men's basketball, men's cross country, men's golf, men's swimming & diving, men's tennis, rowing, women's golf, softball, soccer, women's swimming & diving, women's tennis, women's track & field and volleyball. Both scores are up from last year's report in which the program had a single-year 957 and multi-year 954.

In addition to the men's basketball team, the men's swimming and diving team and the women's volleyball team also posted ideal April scores. Men's golf tied its highest multi-year April in program history with a 993; that high mark also was posted last year and three years ago.
