Missouri passes NCAA's 2010-11 Academic Progress Rate

All 20 Missouri sports scored above the Academic Progress Rate four-year cutline, according to results posted Wednesday on the NCAA website.

The NCAA implemented the APR in 2004 to measure and enforce academic standards of performance. This year's calculations were based on performance from 2007 to 2011. To avoid sanctions, teams must score above 900 on a 1,000-point scale.

Missouri women's gymnastics and women's golf each scored 1,000. Those squads ranked in the top 10 percent nationally and received a Public Recognition Award.

Missouri football ranked 44th in the NCAA with a 972 and men's basketball ranked 77th with a 974. Among the 14 SEC schools, that ranks Missouri football second and men's basketball fourth.

Along with women's gymnastics and women's golf, Missouri led the SEC in men's swimming and diving (993). Baseball (987) and women's indoor track and field (991) ranked second in the SEC.

No Missouri sport scored lower than 958.

Missouri has met APR standards all seven years. In all, the NCAA suspended 10 men's basketball teams and three football teams from post-season competition for 2012-13.
