The NCAA ruled that Corie Blount, a center at Cincinnati, has used up his college eligibility, although Executive Director Richard Schultz indicated he would permit an appeal to the NCAA Council.

Blount, from Monrovia, played four games early in the 1988-89 season at Rancho Santiago Community College before suffering a season-ending injury, received a medical hardship waiver from the California Community Colleges Assn., and later transferred to Cincinnati.

The university contends that 1988-89 should not be counted toward his eligibility because it amounted to a medical redshirt season.
