HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AL.com) - The NCAA has banned Alabama A&M for postseason eligibility during the 2017-18 school year in baseball, men's basketball, men's golf and women's cross country due to low Academic Progress Rate scores.

An APR score of 930 equates to a roughly 50 percent graduation rate and postseason eligibility requires a four-year score of 930 or 940 for the most recent two years. The scores released today by the NCAA are for the four-year period that ended with the 2015-16 school year.

Alabama A&M men's basketball had a rate of 869 for the most recent four-year period and a 904 for the 2015-16 school year. The Bulldogs, who finished 2-27 last season, recently hired former UAB assistant Donnie Marsh as their new head coach.
