The NCAA released their latest Academic Progress Rates (APR) for all Division I schools earlier today and Seton Hall posted a 995 out of 1000, good enough for best in the Big East.
After finishing behind Butler and Villanova last year with a multi-year score of 979, Seton Hall has improved upon that ever-rising mark and has set a new program-high.
Big East rankings:
Seton Hall – 995
Creighton – 991
Villanova – 988
Butler – 974
Providence – 957
St. John’s – 953
DePaul – 952
Georgetown – 950
Xavier – 949
Marquette – 949
A look at Seton Hall’s APR since the 2004-05 season:
* – Seton Hall had one scholarship docked in 2006-07 for their score
Seton Hall’s APR should only rise in the near future after graduating Sterling Gibbs, Haralds Karlis, Brandon Mobley and Stephane Manga earlier this month.
Four Division I schools were handed post-season bans after adding their 2013-14 scores: Alcorn State, Florida A&M, Stetson and Central Arkansas. A four-year average below 930 or a two-year average south of 940 are the thresholds for receiving post-season bans.
