Walter Harrison, the chairman of the NCAA’s Committee on Academic Performance, has said that the body will consider in April or July whether to adjust reporting dates to allow schools to use their most recent data in qualifying for tournaments. For the 2013 men’s basketball tournament, that would mean scores from the 2010-11 and 2011-12 academic year.

UConn would qualify for the tournament under that scenario. During the fall 2011 semester, the team had a perfect APR score, Athletic Director Warde Manuel said Thursday.

“The approach to APR marks the first time in the history of the NCAA that it has ever implemented an academic rule significantly impacting current student-athletes without allowing the members time to adjust to the adoption of the legislation,” Manuel said Thursday.

Manuel would not discuss how the decision might impact Calhoun’s tenure at UConn. The coach has said he will announce a decision soon about whether he will return to coach a 27th season at the school.

Manuel said he would not discuss any conversations he has had with Calhoun about his future.
