USC's APR scores improving

Today's release by the NCAA of team APR scores shows USC moving up a bit again.

In the NCAA’s annual Academic Progress Rates (APR) released today for Division I teams for the 2012-13 through 2015-16 years, USC is moving up a bit in the Pac-12 with a 968 score in football and a 969 score in men's basketball. The minimum threshold to avoid penalties is 930, which equates to a 50 percent graduation rate, with 1,000 a perfect score.

Both USC teams scored a 959 a year ago so that's a move in the right direction. USC is now tied for seventh in the Pac-12 in football at 968 and eighth in men's basketball at 969 with those scores.

Here's how the rest of the Pac-12 stacks up in the two major sports: Arizona State -- FB 971, MBB 990; Oregon State FB 956, MBB 945; Stanford FB 985, MBB 1000; Arizona FB 955, MBB 974; Cal FB 978, MBB 970; UCLA FB 971, MBB 950; Colorado FB 968, MBB 975; Oregon FB 974, MBB 951; Utah FB 983, MBB 990; Washington FB 984, MBB 986 and Washington State FB 964, MBB 953.

For a little more context, Notre Dame posted a 969 in football, one point higher than USC, and a 964 in basketball, five points below USC.
