ORLANDO, Fla. - Earlier this week, The Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sport (TIDES) at the University of Central Florida released its annual study, “Academic Progress/Graduation Success Rate Study of Division I NCAA Women’s and Men’s Basketball Tournament Teams,” which compares graduation rates for Division I teams that have been selected for the men’s and women’s brackets of the 2010 NCAA Basketball Tournaments, and Vermont's men's and women's basketball programs rank highly.

The study examines the Graduation Success Rates (GSR) and the Academic Progress Rates (APR) for the tournament teams. The study compares the academic performance of male and female basketball student‐athletes and of African‐American and white basketball student‐athletes.

The University of Vermont women's basketball team, which defeated top-seeded and No. 21-ranked Hartford, 55-50, to win its second straight America East Championship and earn the league's automatic bid, is one of 19 women's teams in the NCAA Championship with a 100 percent graduation rate.

UVM earned a No. 10 seed and will take on No. 7 Wisconsin on Sunday in South Bend, Ind. on the campus of Notre Dame. The game is scheduled for 12:21 p.m. and will be broadcast on ESPN2 (click here for coverage breakdown).

The Catamount men's basketball team, which also won the America East Championship with a victory over Boston University and earned an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament, ranked sixth out of the 65 NCAA participants with a 92 percent graduation rate.
