Simply put, Villanova is the best combination of hoops and academics in the northeast. What a school. A school we all strive to be like.

Hey; this is totally wrong. Got Pennsylvania confused with Penn State I guess? Penn is an ivy league school, our graduation rate for bball players is likely 100%. Try to get accurate information next time, buckaroo.

University of Pennsylvania has an EXTREMELY high graduation rate for its players... it surely beats Texas; I think you need to double-check your brackets.

is there not a newer study?
They used the years '95-'99. It's now 7 years later, and none of the players actually playing now were in college at the time of the study...
i was in school (undergrad) at the time, and policies towards athletic grad rates at the time were changing. where is the analysis of those policy changes? i've since finished grad school as well. so the data is oooooollllllllllddddddddddddd.
