    Fennelly has a 100% graduation rate at ISU

    I noticed this article on cyclones.com and thought it was pretty impressive.

    The five seniors add to head coach Bill Fennelly’s legacy of success on the court and in the classroom. The quintet will join all of the former women’s basketball players who have graduated from Iowa State after finishing their playing career for the Cyclones, making for a 100 percent graduation rate under Fennelly.

    I don't know the graduation rates of other WBB programs to compare that to, but 15 seasons of everyone graduating says great things about the program he's built here.

    Glad to see that Aus will be finishing her degree this summer, I wondered about that since the WNBA draft/season began before school let out.

    I would assume that "finishing their playing career for the Cyclones" would not include every wbb student-athlete under Fennelly...but only those who played for 4 years.

    Awesome. What a great guy, there's really not much more to be said than that.

    I remember hearing something like this about Pat Summit at Tennessee a year ago or so. Pretty cool stuff.

    Or incoming transfers who finished out their eligibility at ISU.

    That has to be a great recruiting tool, especially with a lot of parents.

    I agree...his graduation percentage of all women's players would be a tad bit lower based on transfers. BUT...the transfers still might graduate on time.
