Again this week, Rutgers athletics brought in recognition for academic success. Both basketball squads recorded APR (academic progress rate) scores over 975 for the 2009-2013 recording period.
The women had the second highest score in the AAC while the men were third best in conference. In 2012-13, the final year of the survey, both squads had perfect 1000 scores. The women also had a 1000 in 2011-12.
The men's score was in the top 30 percent of all men's basketball program and was the highest score by the Knights since the APR started in 2004-05.
