March Madness: The Academic Side

You probably filled out your NCAA Tournament bracket based on winning records, team performance or just because you have designated a team as “your team”.  You have identified which team you think will be the “Cinderella story” of the tournament and you have more than likely already had a few upsets.

But what would the bracket look like if it was not based on who wins the games?  Who would be on top if the brackets were based on academic performance?  InsideHigerEd.com posted their wins for performance off the court and in the classroom.  The decisions were based on the NCAA’s Academic Progress Rate and Graduation Success Rate.

This year’s academic champion:  Butler University.
