NCAA bans 36 teams
May 15, 2014 10:50 AM

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Thirty-six Division I athletic teams will face postseason bans next fall because of sub-par scores on the NCAA’s annual Academic Progress Rate.

Seventeen of those teams play either football or men’s basketball. Last year, 17 teams in all faced postseason bans because of poor academic results.

The APR is billed as a real-time measurement for all teams and is based on a points-system that rewards athletes for staying academically eligible and staying in school.
