The University of Southern Mississippi has disciplined five members of its pep band who heckled Kansas State guard Angel Rodriguez during last week's NCAA Tournament game. The university issued an apology last Thursday to Rodriguez, who said he did hear the chants of ''Where's your green card?'' during the Wildcats' 70-64 second-round victory in the NCAA tournament. He said USM's athletic director and ''personnel from their school'' came to the team hotel to apologize. On Tuesday, USM president Martha Saunders announced in a news release five students have had their pep band scholarships revoked, have been removed from the band and will be required to complete a two-hour cultural sensitivity training course this week. The students have not been identified.
