UConn basketball graduation rates are horrible
Connecticut's basketball program -- already banned from the postseason for failing to meet other academic standards -- has a graduation success rate of just 11 percent, according to an NCAA report released Thursday.
The GSR, released Thursday, measures the percentage of student-athletes earning diplomas at a school over a six-year period. This year's numbers are for the classes that entered school from 2002 to 2005.
UConn's 11 percent rate was far below the national average of 68 percent for men's basketball.
Athletic Director Warde Manual, who took that job this year, said the school is committed to improving the program's performance.
