Michigan State basketball posts fourth straight ideal April score

Michigan State basketball posts fourth straight ideal April score

Women's track had a single-year score of 971 - up from 944 - and a multi-year score of 969. Teams with April scores below a certain threshold are subject to penalties, including postseason bans.

Men's basketball, women's basketball, tennis, men's golf, women's golf and swimming & diving joined women's cross country with ideal single-year April scores for the 2017-18 academic year.

April is one of two calculations - the Graduation Success Rate released each fall is the other - the NCAA uses to monitor the overall academic performance by athletes at each school. Baseball (985) posted its best-ever April for the fifth year in a row, increasing from 949 after the 2013 season to 985 via the 2017-18 data. Data released for this multi-year cohort includes scores from the 2017-18, 2016-17, 2015-16 and 2014-15 academic years. Scores are based on each athlete remaining enrolled in school and academically eligible.

Rowing-which competes in the Big 12 Conference-had the second-highest multi-year score among its conference opponents (991), and men's swimming & diving had the fourth-highest multi-year score among its SEC foes (990). "We continue to post school-best marks each year and have consistently been above the national average". "We are proud of their success and sustained commitment to higher education". The NCAA reports are for one- and four-year periods and do not reflect the current academic year.

All four programs scored a flawless 1000 Academic Progress Rate.

Every Division I sports team across the nation calculates its April each academic year, similar to a report card.

Men's soccer and the ski programs historically have been among the university's higher academic achievers. That list included reigning national football champion Clemson and last year's two national basketball champions - the Villanova men and Notre Dame women.

Neighbors' former program, Washington, had a multi-year score of 984 in the latest report, which encompasses the majority of his final three years at the school. Men's basketball had its highest single-season April in the last five years with a 981 in 2017-18.

Savannah State had four teams impacted - the most in Division I - including postseason bans for the school's football and baseball teams.
