Georgia Tech loses basketball scholarship

ATLANTA — Georgia Tech's basketball team has been penalized with the loss of a scholarship due to academic performance for the second time in three years.

Georgia Tech's score of 915 out of 1000 on the NCAA's Academic Progress Report released Tuesday was below the 925 cutoff point. Georgia Tech says it anticipated it would not make the APR cutoff and reduced its scholarships by one in the 2010-11 season.

The school says it will have its full 13 scholarships for its first season with new coach Brian Gregory in 2011-12.

The APR is a point system based on scholarship athletes remaining eligible and in school. It serves as a predictor of graduation rates.

Three Georgia Tech teams — golf and men's and women's cross country — had perfect scores of 1,000.
