Indiana's APR officially out of penalty zone

Indiana's APR has been phenomenal
under Coach Tom Crean.
Fred Glass, Tom Crean and the Indiana Hoosiers men's basketball program received fantastic news today regarding the teams multi-year Academic Progress Rate (APR) score. For the first time since Mike Davis was head coach, Indiana's score came in above the 925 penalty zone at 929. This can be attributed to a perfect 1000 score for the 2009-2010 academic year, which raised the 4-year sliding score 51 points from last year's abysmal 878. Low scores from Davis' last seasons seriously hindered the Indiana average, as did a 811 in 2006 with Kelvin Sampson in charge.
The multi-year average takes into account 4 straight years and is delayed by one. This past academic year (2010-2011) will not be a part of the sliding APR score until this time next year. When the average dropped to 866 in 2008, the university self-imposed a loss of two scholarships for the program. In Tom Crean's first two years at Indiana, the basketball team has posted scores of 975 and 1000.
