San Jose State reports low APR scores, expecting NCAA sanctions

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- San Jose State men's basketball program is expecting to incur NCAA sanctions for reporting low Academic Progress Rate scores.

The school announced Tuesday that its APR score for 2012-13 is likely to fall below 930, out of 1,000, which triggers NCAA sanctions. The APR score is designed to measure the academic eligibility, retention and graduation of an institution's players and its teams. Schools whose APR doesn't meet the minimum number are subject to NCAA penalties.

San Jose State says sanctions will include a postseason ban for the 2014-15 season, including the Mountain West Conference tournament. The school also will have to replace four hours of weekly practice time with four additional hours of academic activities and have five days of basketball-related activities per week instead of six.
