NCAA hands academic sanctions to two soccer programs

MOST COMMENTED

Division I soccer programs largely escaped the wrath of the NCAA, which handed out sanctions this week to teams that failed to meet academic standards. Only two soccer teams were subject to sanctions.

San Jose State's men's soccer team received a warning letter and also faced the loss of 0.99 scholarships for its failure to meet the NCAA's Academic Progress Rates (APR) that measure eligibility and retention of student-athletes. Women's soccer was one of five sports at Texas Southern to receive warning letters.

Teams with APR scores of less than 925 -- roughly a 60 percent graduation rate -- received warning letters and could face harsher sanctions over the next three years. A second offense during that time would result in a reduction of practice time or games played. A third offense would result in disqualification from NCAA tournaments.

There were 112 teams that received sanctions. That number could go up dramatically next year when squad-size adjustments are eliminated. Without them, 28 men's soccer teams and eight women's teams fell below the 925 level.
