GRADUATION RATES FALL AMONG MEN'S HOOP PROGRAMS
Published June 30, 1995
An NCAA study reveals that for the first time since Proposition 48, graduation rates have declined in men's basketball. The graduation rate for Div. I basektball players who entered college in '88 was 42%, a drop from 46% for the previous class. The "sharp decline among male basketball players may be cause for concern, especially because the dip occurred when even stricter academic requirements were supposed to have the opposite effect." The biggest "strides" in the data were made by black female athletes (AP/Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 6/30). HEAVY ATTENDANCE: National home attendance for NCAA Women's basketball reached an all-time high. Tennessee led all schools with the highest home average (8,032) and total attendance (290,410). The Big Ten had the highest per game average of 3,137. The 4,961,946 who watched NCAA women play in '94-95 was an increase of 9% over '93-94 (NCAA).
