UConn Basketball Waiver For 2012-2013 Postseason Denied By NCAA

According to Jeff Goodman of CBS Sports, the NCAA has denied Connecticut's waiver request to participate in the NCAA Tournament for the 2012-2013 season. His Tweet of the breaking news appears below:

According to Goodman, Connecticut's request for a waiver allowing it to participate in the NCAA Tournament in 2013 will now go ahead to the NCAA Division I Committee on Academic Performance Subcommittee on Appeals. Connecticut is currently ineligible for next year's NCAA Tournament because the basketball team's four year average on the NCAA academic metric, the APR (Academic Progress Rate), falls below the minimum required to participate in the Tournament. The school had submitted a plan to be given a waiver that included lesser self-imposed penalties and would allow it to participate in the postseason as it tried to improve the basketball team's APR.
