LOOK: Kentucky would reach title game if NCAA Tournament was decided by academic progress rate

Everyone seems to rag on Kentucky as a on-and-done factory, but apparently they’re getting it done in the classroom as well.

According to Doug Lederman of InsideHigherEd.com, the Wildcats would still do extremely well if the NCAA Tournament bracket were decided by highest Academic Progress Rate.

It’s perfect 1,000 score took the program all the way to the title game before losing to Bucknell. The Wildcats lost on a tiebreaker with the Bison, which had a higher federal graduation rate.

Kentucky beat Gonzaga, Texas, Creighton, Arizona and Davidson along the way. While APR seems like a difficult statistic to calculate, the Wildcats can only hope their actual tournament run on the hardwood also goes as smoothly.
