Three NCSU Teams Recognized by NCAA for APR

RALEIGH, N.C. * Three NC State programs, men's basketball, men's cross country and rifle, have been recognized by the NCAA for their exceptional work in the classroom as part of the NCAA's Academic Performance Program.

The awards are given annually to teams scoring in the top 10 percent in each sport with their APRs.

Only two men's basketball programs and four men's cross country programs in the ACC were honored, with NC State being commended in both sports.

The APR provides a real-time view of a team's academic success by tracking the progress of each student-athlete during the school year. By measuring eligibility and retention each semester or quarter, the APR provides a clear picture of the academic culture in each sport.
