INDIANAPOLIS - Indiana's men's basketball team has produced its first perfect score on the NCAA's Academic Progress Rates.
The score was released Tuesday by the NCAA and shows a dramatic improvement for the program. In 2007-08, the Hoosiers scored well below the 925 cutline, hitting 811. Last year, the Hoosiers had a record-high one-year score of 975. This year, they've bested that with a 1,000.
Indiana's four-year average is now 929, slightly above the cutline.
Thirteen teams in Bloomington have received perfect scores this year, and four teams have placed in the top 10 percent of their sports. They are baseball, men's golf, men's soccer and women's soccer.
