NCAA rescinds Alabama State's postseason ban
After originally being banned from the postseason in 2013-14, Alabama State learned on Friday that ruling had been changed.
When the NCAA announced the new Academic Progress Rate numbers in June, it also named the six men’s basketball programs that would be banned from postseason play in 2013-14. Alabama State was among that sextet.
On Friday, the NCAA rescinded the ban for the Hornets after going through data that Alabama State submitted during an adjustment phase.
“Once the NCAA evaluated that additional academic performance data, assessed our ASU Academic Improvement Plan and reviewed us according to its Limited Resource Institution component, the NCAA staff determined that ASU will not be penalized,” acting athletic director Melvin Hines said in a statement.
Postseason bans against the baseball, volleyball and football teams were also lifted.
