There will be no Grad Night celebration at the NCAA West Regional today, when Stanford faces Cincinnati's diploma-challenged basketball program. The Stanford band, notorious for its outrageous pranks, has been ordered not to wear graduation gowns mocking the woeful graduation rate of the Cincinnati basketball program, a band spokesman said Wednesday. "We got word from our athletic department that the NCAA has ordered us not to wear graduation gowns," said Aram Cretan, a sophomore trumpet player.

The questions were so predictable. To Stanford forward Ryan Mendez went the one about how good it must be to play with kids who have such high IQs. Because, geez, aren't those smart kids whizzes when it comes to game plans? And to Cincinnati Coach Bob Huggins, what about that reported 8% graduation rate of Bearcat players? For it is the perception that Huggins recruits only reprobates and itinerants interested only in apprenticing for the pros.

University of Cincinnati football Coach Dave Currey, under fire after 5 losing seasons and a suspension by the National Collegiate Athletic Assn., has resigned. He will remain in his position as associate athletic director until Jan. 3 to help with the transition for the new staff, university officials said. Currey, 45, had a record of 19-36. The Bearcats' record this year was 3-8. Currey came to Cincinnati in 1983 from Cal State Long Beach, where he compiled a 40-36 record in 7 seasons.

Rod Baker, whose six seasons as UC Irvine men's basketball coach ended in March, has signed a personal services contract with the University of Cincinnati. The Bearcats have an opening for an assistant coach and Baker is considered the front-runner. The personal services contract enables him to recruit for the Bearcats, school officials said. Baker, who last month was a finalist for an assistant coach's job at Rhode Island, will join a program that was among the best in the nation.

Nobody threw beer or cola at the Cincinnati Bearcats, before or after they mopped up the Sports Arena floor Sunday with USC, 100-81. Such had not been the case at their previous game, at North Carolina Charlotte five days earlier, when a couple of Coach Bob Huggins' players, angry over being doused, retaliated by throwing basketballs at the fans in the stands.

What, Cincinnati worry? About what? About North Carolina's big-deal reputation? About its tradition? Its ancestry? About all that ancient-history stuff? About all those players who used to play there? "Doesn't mean much to me," Cincinnati senior forward Erik Martin said Saturday, looking toward today's East Regional final in the NCAA basketball tournament. "They're just another team. (Michael) Jordan can't play for them tomorrow." Disrespect? No, self-respect.

For a moonlighting stand-up comedian who has played nightclubs from California to Ohio, he sure is looking serious here today, only 45 minutes from Broadway. Practice is running smoothly and so is he, ever mindful that basketball is no laughing matter to his coach, Bob Huggins, a man who is in no mood today for one of his funny forward's comedy jams.

Corie Blount says he doesn't blame anybody for the administrative problem that kept him from playing for the University of Cincinnati basketball team until Saturday. Blount was declared ineligible in September when the NCAA ruled that a medical redshirt waiver he had received while playing for Rancho Santiago was not binding.

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.

Defensive pressure helped Cincinnati reach the Final Four and it helped the Bearcats open a seven-point second-half lead over Michigan Saturday at the Metrodome in the semifinals of the NCAA tournament. But a strong press is reliant on a consistent offense. And when the Bearcats broke down offensively against Michigan, they couldn't keep the pressure on the young Wolverines.
