Syracuse Football, Basketball See Rising 2012-2013 APR Scores

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Syracuse sees scores in all the major scores go up, up, up!

The NCAA released APR, or Academic Progress Rate scores for the 2012-2013 season today, and while there have been causes for concern in the past with some Syracuse Orange programs (Hi, Boeheim), everyone's scores looked pretty spiffy this time around.

Syracuse Football boasts a score of 965, up from the previous year's 958 score. It's also the third-straight year the score has risen. SU is eighth in the ACC overall.

Syracuse Basketball scored 969, which is a major boost from previous years and the highest since 2004-2005 (967), good for seventh overall in the ACC. No need for Boeheim's boys to worry this time around. The program lost two scholarships following the 2008-2009 season when the score dipped down to 912. Boeheim was displeased (and we weren't much happier).

Other notable scores include men's lacrosse (974), men's soccer (936), women's basketball (991), women's lacrosse (995) and women's soccer (996).

For a reminder on the standards the NCAA requires all programs to meet...

Beginning with 2012-13 championships, teams must earn a minimum 900 four-year APR or a 930 average over the most recent two years to be eligible to participate. For 2014-15 championships, teams must earn a 930 four-year average APR or a 940 average over the most recent two years to participate in championships. In 2015-16 and beyond, teams must earn a four-year APR of 930 to compete in championships.

Syracuse isn't in danger of any issues with meeting these requirements.
