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.
