UK Men's Basketball Received an Award for its Academic Progress Rate Score


“We have graduated 17 players over the last eight years,” UK head coach John Calipari said. “Our kids who leave early leave in good academic standing so they can come back anytime they choose to finish their degree. They have lifetime scholarships here at Kentucky. We already have players who have left early who have begun that process. I said this a year ago: Whether it’s getting off a plane at 2 in the morning and going to class the next day or sitting in a classroom and doing projects with the student body, it’s well known that our kids are committed to learning. They have curious minds and are on the paths to being lifelong learners. Winning the APR award for a third-straight year is based on all of those things. Congratulations to (academic counselor) Mike Stone and the entire CATS staff for instilling that mindset in our kids.”


Coach Cal’s single-year APR rates the last eight years:

Year School APR D-I Avg.

2007-08 Memphis 1000 946

2008-09 Memphis 980 948

2009-10 Kentucky 979 950

2010-11 Kentucky 979 953

2011-12 Kentucky 977 960

2012-13 Kentucky 1000 964

2013-14 Kentucky 1000 961

2014-15 Kentucky 1000 964

*Note: The 2015-16 scores will be released at a later date. The 2016-17 scores will be released next year.
