Men’s Basketball One of 10 Teams Banned from ’13 Tournament

As expected, the Huskies’ men’s basketball team is banned from the 2013 NCAA Tournament. The official announcement came yesterday. UConn had much-improved Academic Progress Rate scores for the 2010-2011 school year, but the ban is implemented based on previous scores.

Nine other schools are also banned for men’s basketball: Arkansas-Pine Bluff, Cal State Bakersfield, California-Riverside, Jacksonville State, Mississippi Valley State, North Carolina-Wilmington, Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, Toldeo, and Towson.

UConn is the only one of those 10 schools that hails from a major conference. The Huskies are the first school from one of the six major conferences to face a postseason ban in either men’s basketball or football based on APR, according to UConn could also lose practice time and become ineligible for the Big East tournament.
