Unless I'm reading something wrong, all of Kentucky's athletics teams did fine in the APR and none face penalties. Here's the NCAA release on the national scores and teams facing penalties:
Most Division I teams deliver top grades
UK men's basketball had a score of 963 for 2010-11 academic year. Average four-year score in 950 for men's basketball.
If you want to see all of the UK team scores go to following link and search 'Kentucky' under school menu:
I think i'm more confused now. Why is UCONN losing its postseason eligiblity? It should only lose practice time by this article
Edit: i know they are banned but at the bottom it explains the level's like 1, 2, 3 teirs. idk, maybe a typo

The NCAA released its Academic Progress Rate report Tuesday, showing that all 22 of the University of Kentucky sports teams surpassed the NCAA cut score and that 15 of the 22 squads exceeded the national average for public universities in their sports.
The men’s golf team led the way with a perfect 1,000 score, followed by women’s cross country (994), men’s cross country (993), women’s golf (993) and women’s tennis (992).
The marks are a four-year composite, covering the 2007-08, 2008-09, 2009-10 and 2010-11 school years, that measures academic eligibility and retention of student-athletes. The NCAA cut score for each sport is 930, which is an increase from the previous years’ cutoff of 925.
The 15 Wildcat teams that exceeded the national average among public universities in their sports included the five teams listed above, along with baseball (975), men’s basketball (963), women’s basketball (980), football (951), softball (984), men’s tennis (987), women’s indoor track (984), women’s outdoor track (986) volleyball (990) and the combined men’s/women’s sport of rifle (982).
Another highlight of the report was eight UK teams that notched a perfect 1,000 score for the 2010-11 school year – women’s basketball, men’s cross country, women’s cross country, men’s golf, women’s golf, men’s tennis, women’s tennis and volleyball.
“With the increase of the cut score, achieving the APR has become even more challenging,” said Mitch Barnhart, UK Director of Athletics. “Our coaches and support personnel have done well in adjusting to the requirements and I’m proud of our student-athletes for their work in posting strong scores.”
With each team exceeding the NCAA target score, no Wildcat squads are subject to penalties, such as scholarship reductions or postseason restrictions. None of UK’s 22 teams have incurred a penalty during the nine-year history of the APR.
Teams with postseason ineligibility for 2012-13:
• California State-Bakersfield (still under review)
• Jacksonville State
• Mississippi Valley State
• Texas A&M Corpus Christi
• Arkansas-Pine Bluff
• North Carolina-Wilmington
• North Carolina A&T State
• Texas Southern
• Central Connecticut State
• Northern Colorado
Connecticut men's basketball team is among the 15 teams banned from postseason play because of poor classroom performance.

UCONN is the only high major program facing penalties. This among a few other issues that they've had. Not good for Calhoun's legacy at all.
Look at UL football sitting at a 911 avg.
