NCAA Tournament Bracket according to graduation rate


Today was the opening round of the 2011 NCAA Tournament. While many agree that March Madness is the greatest sports day of the year, a recent documentary has casted negative light on the sport. In an ESPN documentary on the “Fab 5,” 1990s Michigan player Jalen Rose critized Duke for only recruiting “Uncle Tom” players for fear of having to pay inner city and low income families to play with the school. College basketball has long been critized for players coming out too early to go pro. Under NBA draft rules, a player is only required to play one year of college basketball before he can turn pro… more than half of the NCAA tournament teams have a less than 50 percent graduation rate.
