Last week, John Calipari announced the basketball team had a 3.129 cumulative GPA for the fall semester, and today, the complete grades were released. For the seventh time in the last eight semesters, the basketball team posted better than a 3.0 GPA, and 13 of the 16 players on the roster had a 3.0 GPA or higher.
“These kids work in the classroom, and I’m proud of them,” John Calipari said. “They’re not only playing selfless basketball, they’re getting it done in the classroom too, which makes me just as proud.”
Meanwhile, the football team posted a 2.506 cumulative GPA (2.438 for competing scholarship players), which is down from the spring semester’s 2.813 GPA.
