Gainesville, Fla.

Will Yeguete graduated after earning SEC Academic Honor Roll recognition three times.

The classroom honors keep piling up for the Florida men’s basketball team, earning recognition from the NCAA on Wednesday for an Academic Progress Rate (APR) that ranks in the top 10 percent in the sport.

The Gators are the only SEC men’s basketball team to receive this NCAA honor, which UF’s women’s basketball and softball teams also earned. The APR provides a real-time look at a team’s academic success each semester by tracking the academic progress of each student on scholarship.

This caps a season in which Florida placed a league-record eight players on the SEC Academic Honor Roll, including three multiple-year honorees, led by three-time SEC Scholar-Athlete of the Year and 2014 Academic All-American Patric Young.
