Boy, do we love the words “beating Harvard,” especially when it comes to academics.
The way the experts have it figured, UT would do just that if our men’s basketball team were competing based on academic performance.
In fact, the Longhorns made the Academic Final Four along with Lehigh, Davidson, and Kansas.
That calculation was done in part by the University of Central Florida’s Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sports, and the rest by Inside Higher Ed.
It uses the NCAA’s Academic Progress Rate, a complex four-year metric that takes into account each athlete’s academic standing and retention on a given team.
Like KU, UT scored a perfect APR of 1,000, with the other two final four members just behind. Outside a national championship, it just doesn’t get much more satisfying than that.
