A student that is in good standing but does not return for the second semester earns 1 out of 2 points (Olek Czyz). This is case SA2.
If the student athlete completes a year in good standing and then transfers that is case SA3 (Mike G) and earns 3 of 4 points. So Mike's transfer will count against Duke's APR in the future as does Olek's.
What is interesting is that there is no explicit case mentioned about leaving early to go pro, but this could be similar to SA3 so Kyrie and Austin would gain only 3 out of 4 points toward the APR or they may consider Kyrie and Austin as "graduates" and they gain 4 out of 4 points.
The overall message is that none of the Duke players left in poor standing (as far as we know) but the simple fact that Olek and Mike transfered counts against the APR.
This actually might be a "catch 22" for UConn. They can not play in the NCAAs next year due to a low APR. Most of their team is transfering so the APR will continue to be low.

I don't know what the "certain GPA" is, but since Mike was Academic All-ACC, I'm sure he meets the minimum and Duke won't be adversely affected.
That's a lot larger number than I expected. Almost half in baseball. 74 adjustments for men's basketball, which also sounds like a lot given there are only 60 total picks in the NBA draft - I guess people go professionally elsewhere as well.694 student-athletes were granted APR adjustments for professional departures

I truely believe based on my personal experiences in the military that to be a good to great leader, you must be a good to great servent. Never underestimate humility as a primary trait for effective leadership. Of course you want you leaders to be confident, but arrogance most ofter works against folks trying to lead.
I just do not see much humility at the top of the Bob Cats organization...
Now a good counter point would be Mark Cuban. Humble, ehhh... in his own way. Seems to create an enviornment where his players know he has their back, and will fight for them to the point of looking the fool sometimes. To me that is a unique form of humility...
Per Goodman, Maryland loses their leading scorer.

Maryland sophomore guard and leading scorer Terrell Stoglin headed to the NBA, per multiple reports. --
I like Turgeon, and I think he's gonna get that program back on its feet, but unexpectedly losing your leading scorer and best player? Quite a blow

Maryland announced that Terrell Stoglin and Mychal Parker have been suspended for year due to violation. Stoglin put name in for NBA Draft.
If I were Turgeon I wouldn't be crying too much about the Stoglin departure. He is very talented at basketball, but it seemed to me that his talent wasn't worth the aggravation.
Can Stoglin still come back if he goes undrafted? Or did they change that rule? If so, then it kind of makes sense for him to go ahead and put his name in.
my post (#106 in this thread). There's some good discussion of Beal vs. Rivers in there.
My take is that Beal has a more NBA-ready body and is a little better athlete. Their numbers this past season were nearly identical, but Rivers dominated the ball more.
