Congratulations are in order for two Division I Indiana women’s basketball programs. Butler and Evansville were both recognized by the NCAA on Wednesday for their exceptional work in the classroom as part of the NCAA’s Academic Performance Program.

The awards are given annually to teams scoring in the top 10 percent in each sport with their Academic Performance Rate (APR).

The APR provides a real-time view of a team’s academic success by tracking the progress of each student-athlete during the school year. By measuring eligibility and retention each semester or quarter, the APR provides a clear picture of the academic culture in each sport.

Butler was one of 13 schools to have both their men’s and women’s basketball teams make the list
