The National Collegiate Athletic Association announced that 15 teams at colleges and universities across the United States will be banned from postseason competition during the 2012-13 academic year because they failed to achieve a sufficient Academic Progress Rate for members of the team.
Only three football teams were banned from postseason competition. All are from historically Black universities. The three football teams banned from postseason play are from Hampton University, North Carolina A&T State University, and Texas Southern University.
Of the 10 men’s basketball teams banned from postseason play next year, two are from historically Black universities. The banned teams are at the University of Arkansas Pine Bluff and Mississippi Valley State University.
