April was a month for anniversaries. It has wrung us out emotionally: the 40-year-old scars of imminent victory, Hitler's suicide and the collapse of Germany, and the fresh wounds that President Reagan's planned Bitburg cemetery visit opened; the still-raw 10-year-old sores of slow defeat in Vietnam, and the force-feeding of memories many people think we should keep always before us, and others would just as soon forget. But May, too, has its anniversaries.

The ensemble arrived late, pumped up the crowd with its inspired play and briefly knocked Arizona on its brass section. Too bad the up-tempo Jackson State band can't play basketball. Crossed up by a bogus itinerary, the school's band and pep squad arrived with 7:18 left in the first half Thursday night and inspired a brief 4-0 Jackson State run that tied the score at 15-all. After that, though, all the notes on the court fell flat.

Junior forward Brian Jackson, Oregon State's second-leading scorer, left the team on Wednesday, the second player to leave the program in three days. Jackson, who averaged 11.7 points, followed junior guard Jimmie Haywood, who left the team Monday, citing personal reasons. "Brian indicated to me that he was leaving because he desired more of a heightened role in our offensive scheme," Coach Ritchie McKay said.

The faster the better, and this was "Speed," Bruin-style. The Jackson State Tigers, in the middle of a rambling western trip, bused in from Arizona, and UCLA blew them up Tuesday night. Even though it came against the hard-traveled, turnover-prone Tigers, the 93-67 Bruin victory was the best basketball UCLA has played this season, the most organized and the least skittish.

In a game where the last team to be dynamic would win, the Lakers gave up 34 fourth-quarter points to the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday night. In the same quarter, at the end of a 114-108 loss at the Pyramid, the Lakers missed half of their six free throws, the Grizzlies made 14 of 18 and the Lakers found that the worst team in the Western Conference, even for 12 minutes, was better than they were. So, their parallel victory paces are 68 overall, but only 27 on the road.

Kareem Rush had his second 24-point game in a row and made six three-point baskets in No. 3 Missouri's 106-68 victory against Jackson State on Thursday night at Columbia, Mo. Missouri's three previous games had been victories against Alabama and Iowa, both ranked, and Xavier, but there was no letdown. "This game was actually a little bit difficult because I guess people thought we were going to let down," Rush said. "We tried really hard not to go out there and not play to our competition."
