INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The NCAA seems to be getting serious about its new academic requirements for college basketball teams.
 
On Wednesday, a record 10 men's basketball teams including three-time national champion Connecticut were banned from this year's NCAA tournament because of poor Academic Progress Rate scores.
 
Joining the Huskies on the sideline next March will be Arkansas-Pine Bluff, California-Riverside, Cal State Bakersfield, Jacksonville State, Mississippi Valley State, North Carolina-Wilmington, Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, Toledo and Towson.
 
The APR measures the classroom performance of every Division I team.
