In the last year, no Pac-12 school did better than either the Arizona Wildcats' football or men's basketball teams, according to Academic Progress Rate scores released today by the NCAA.

Rich Rodriguez scored a 980 in his first year as the Wildcats' coach, while Sean Miller's basketball team tied with three other Pac-12 schools for a one-year score of 1,000.

The APR, however, mostly measures the eligibility, graduation and retention rates of each team in four-year cohorts. Using the four-year measurement, the UA football team finished fifth in the league with a 956; the men's basketball team was sixth in the conference with a 969.
