Basketball Graduation Rates... suck

The full story is here.

I'm disturbed that there is a 10% graduation rate for two of these schools.

I'm suspicious about a 100% graduation rate for a few others -- including one whose debate team I'm cozy with.

But, what bothers me the most is that at Northridge and Maryland, 50% of the white players graduated in the 5 years of the study and 0% of the black ones graduated.

The coaches claim it isn't their job to graduate players -- and that many of their players become pro, play in Europe etc...

So -- maybe the coaches need to track 'successful transition to professional-status'.
