UNCG Passes APR Test

UNCG received passing marks in all sports for this year's APR Report. Last year, men's basketball and baseball fell below the magic "925" mark and were assessed penalties. This season was much improved.

On this year’s report, men’s baseball has a score of 937, while men’s basketball has a score of 930. Last year, both of those program’s had good eligibility scores, but were hurt by retention rates. In fact, UNCG’s men’s basketball four-year score is now nearly in-line with the national average of 933."

You can find individual APR scores for all schools here.
Here is the list of penalized institutions. You'll notice SoCon men's basketball teams from Georgia Southern & UT-Chattanooga on the list of penalized teams.
