Uconn Basketball 25%. Ouch. I know that's kids going to the NBA and transferring, but on paper it still looks bad. http://stanford. /2/1183346.html Basketball Graduation Rates: Big East Villanova 100% Notre Dame 100% Marquette 91% St. John's 83% West Virginia 83% DePaul 80% Rutgers 75% Georgetown 70% Seton Hall 69% Providence 67% Pittsburgh 64% Cincinnati 56% Louisville 56% Syracuse 54% South Florida 44% Connecticut 25% For the sixth straight year, Connecticut has the worst basketball graduation rate in the Big East. Connecticut's failure to qualify academically for next year's NCAA tournament shouldn't have been a surprise to anyone who has been following The Bootleg's annual graduation rate reports. The Connecticut basketball program's graduation record has been terrible, year after year.
