The Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sport, at the University of Central Florida released it’s annual report “Keeping Score When It Counts“. The report contains the graduation success rates (GSR) of all 65 NCAA Division I basketball teams in the 2008 tournament. While the Tigers may win the tournament, they are not very competitive when it comes to graduation. The report indicates that their GSR for African-American players was only 33% as opposed to UNC which graduated 75% of their African-American players.
