Kansas, Missouri make the NCAA academic grade

The report cards for academic achievement are in and nearly every team in the Big 12 passed. Some even made the honor roll.

The men’s basketball team was one of three sports at Kansas to receive a public recognition award.Other teams cited for a public recognition award by the NCAA were the Jayhawks’ men’s and women’s cross country teams, the Missouri women’s basketball and women’s golf teams and UMKC’s women’s tennis and women’s volleyball teams.

Ranked by order of finish in the Big 12 -- best to worst APR -- Missouri had the best cumulative total. None of its teams finished lower than seventh in the conference.
