PLAYER OF THE YEAR LOUIS BIRDSONG Mount St. Joseph Birdsong epitomized the team concept that led the Gaels to a state record for wins in a season by a boys basketball team. The 6-foot-6, 240-pound senior forward's constant hustle and all-around play helped lead the Gaels to a 38-1 season and a No. 5 national ranking by USA Today. Birdsong's strengths were in evidence in Frostburg this past weekend at the 46th Alhambra tournament, where he led the Gaels to their first final in that event in 35 years, which they lost to DeMatha, 70-55.

Over the past two seasons, during Mount St. Joseph's continued domination in the Baltimore Catholic League and the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference, Louis Birdsong has been a staple in that success. The 6-foot-6, 235-pound Birdsong displayed again yesterday at the Mount in Irvington his uncanny knack for making big plays as the top-ranked Gaels outlasted No. 2 Towson Catholic, 56-55, in front of a capacity crowd. Birdsong, who is headed to George Mason, sparkled at both ends of the court to keep the Gaels unbeaten at 17-0.

Gay rights activist Jan Nyquist, who was confirmed as a member of the county Human Rights Commission by a split vote last July, was elected chairwoman of the panel last night -- again by a split vote.Ms. Nyquist was elected by a 5-3 majority, with one commissioner abstaining. Two commissioners were absent.Ms. Nyquist was the choice of a three-member nominating committee that also recommended Commissioner Harold L. Williams as vice chairman. He was elected unanimously.Some members asked Mr. Williams to run as a compromise candidate for chairman between Ms. Nyquist and Commissioner Robert Birdsong Jr., but he refused, saying he had just taken a new job.Many commissioners saw the election of either Ms. Nyquist or Mr. Birdsong -- who was nominated from the floor by acting chairwoman Lucie R. Pelgrim -- as perpetuating verbal infighting on the commission.

Mount St. Joseph forwards Louis Birdsong and Dino Gregory were a study in contrasts after their meeting with No. 3 St. Frances on Tuesday night. Gregory looked as if he were ready to go another 10 rounds, if necessary, with the Panthers, but Birdsong looked exhausted enough to get 10 hours' sleep right there on the St. Frances gym floor. In the game, however, Gregory and Birdsong found common ground, namely choking off St. Frances' interior attack en route to an impressive 59-56 win, the third for the unbeaten, top-ranked Gaels over the Panthers this season.

I am responding to a letter on your "Howard Viewpoints" page dated Jan. 24, entitled "Behind the Human Rights Dispute." In keeping with the purpose of "Viewpoints," I offer the following:As a former chair of the Howard County Human Rights Commission, and as one of many who have attempted to protect the human rights of all citizens, I find myself under constant attack.Commission member Robert Birdsong is currently continuing in his attempt to have it both ways. While outwardly professing to "pledge his full support" to Chairwoman Jan Nyquist, I have been told that several commissioners . . . met with the county executive following the nominating committee report that recommended Ms. Nyquist for chair.

3 Consecutive dunks in the final 50 seconds of top-ranked Mount St. Joseph's 14-0 run to put away upset-minded Loyola, 63-49, on Jan. 29. The first two tomahawk dunks by Louis Birdsong rattled the rim, and Dino Gregory's two-handed jam bent the rim to stop play. Birdsong then jumped up with a ball and pushed the rim back into place. 7 Times Archbishop Curley 215-pounder Joe Green, ranked No. 3 in The Sun in his class, has wrestled up at 275 pounds. Green is 6-1 this season at 275 pounds, the weight at which he won last year's Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association tournament title.

In their first game since being ranked No. 11 nationally in Tuesday's USA Today, The Sun's top-ranked Mount St. Joseph was ripe for the taking last night in Irvington as No. 3 St. Frances came calling. Shooting just 28 percent in the first half (8-for-29) compared to the Panthers' 50 percent (13-for-26), the Gaels found themselves down by 10 at the half. But a furious third quarter led by Louis Birdsong and Dejuan Goodwin's hot hand from the foul line in the last eight minutes enabled the Gaels to avoid the upset and post a 60-51 victory.

Through its first seven games, all victories, the top-ranked Mount St. Joseph basketball team looked every bit like the defending Baltimore Catholic League champions. Its powerful frontcourt of Louis Birdsong (6 feet 6, 230 pounds) and Dino Gregory (6-8, 225) has been dominant on the boards, guards Chase Adams, Kevin Swecker and Dejuan Goodwin have worked well together as a trio, and sixth man Henry Sims, a 6-9, 210-pound sophomore, "has been coming on strong," according to Gaels coach Pat Clatchey.
