Rider, Princeton men's hoops teams honored for APR

When it comes to Academic Progress rate, the Rider men's basketball team is in good company -- company, in fact, that includes Princeton.

The Broncs and Tigers both received public recognition awards Wednesday for placing in the top 10 percent in APR.

The full list:

American, Belmont, Boise State, BYU, Brown, Bucknell, Butler, Colgate, Holy Cross, Columbia, Davidson, DePaul, Drexel, Elon, George Mason, Harvard, Lafayette, Lehigh, Loyola-Illiniois, Michigan State, North Carolina State, Northwestern, Penn State, Princeton, Rider, Texas U&M, Navy, Kansas, North Carolina, Notre Dame, Texas, Utah, Washington, West Virginia, Western Michigan, Xavier, Yale.

Not surprisingly, the Tigers weren't the only Ivy League team on the list. They were joined by Brown, Columbia, Harvard and Yale. I'll give Cornell the benefit of the doubt that the players were too busy playing in the NCAA tournament to keep up with their school work. I don't know what was going on at Dartmouth or Penn.

... The Broncs were the MAAC's lone representative.

As it should be the lone MAAC representative.
