Halftime, in the hallway: "Hey. Hey, U. . .C. . .L. . .A." Gerald Madkins gave the guy a Robert DeNiro sort of look of disbelief and asked: "You talking to me?" He must have been, because Gerald was the only one there. "Yeah, talking to you ," said sophomore forward Shelton Carney of Robert Morris. "Talking to you, UCLA. Sorry, but you guys just didn't come to play." The rest of the Bruin basketball team was a few steps behind, ascending a staircase.

The NCAA on Tuesday denied Robert Morris College's appeal of penalties against its men's basketball program, upholding the Colonials' ban from the Northeast Conference tournament. Robert Morris was put on probation last May for two years, fined $88,000 and banned from live TV this season. Two grants-in-aid were taken away. The college sought a reduced fine and permission to play in postseason tournaments after the NCAA reversed a ruling that barred UNLV from defending its national championship.

Robert Morris College, encouraged by the recent successful plea by top-ranked Nevada Las Vegas, announced Wednesday that it has appealed its ban from the 1991 Northeast Conference and NCAA basketball tournaments. The school was placed on two years' probation and prohibited from appearing on live television and in postseason play during 1990-91 by the NCAA Infractions Committee last May. The school also lost two scholarships.

Robert Morris College--its dormitories, classrooms, library, gym and 20 acres--sold at auction Thursday for $400,000. The College Education Foundation, a nonprofit group of area businesses, made the only bid. If the college's trustees approve the sale, which is considered likely, the buyers want to find another school to take over the facilities. The two-year business school used to be based here but now has its main campus in Chicago. In December, school officials stunned Carthage residents with their decision to close the campus because of a deficit of $460,000.

And so, let's go. Let's get this first game over with. Bring on the Pittsburgh School of Accountancy. That was the original name of Robert Morris College when it was founded 70 years ago, before being renamed in honor of a Revolutionary War-era financier. But UCLA doesn't much care which school's basketball team it plays. UCLA simply wants to be UCLA. Free of any pressure to be like the UCLA of yesteryear. Free of any expectation to defeat anybody and everybody that stands in UCLA's way.

Jim Harrick saved his breath this week. To remind his team about the danger of overconfidence in the NCAA tournament, all the UCLA coach had to do was utter the two words that Bruin fans everywhere have come to loathe: Penn State. "It keeps the fires burning," Gerald Madkins said. "We'll never forget Penn State."

Robert Morris won't appeal a judge's decision that upheld the NCAA's ban on the Colonials appearing in postseason tournaments, according to college President Edward Nicholson. A judge ruled last week that Robert Morris didn't show its penalties were significantly harsher than those imposed on programs at Missouri and Illinois.
