ATLANTA (AP) -- Georgia Tech and Kennesaw State have each been
penalized two scholarships in men's basketball and Georgia Southern lost three scholarships in football and one in men's basketball after falling below NCAA standards for academic progress.

The sanctions and results came in the NCAA's annual Academic Progress Report.

The score is based on scholarship athletes remaining eligible and in school.

Georgia Tech said it played with 11 scholarships in the 2008-09 season instead of the maximum 13 and expects to have all 13 scholarships available for next season.

The Georgia Tech men's basketball APR was 914. Georgia Southern had a 908 APR in men's basketball and 913 in football.

Georgia's football and women's basketball APRs were the best in the Southeastern Conference.
