Six and counting. That's the number of companies that will no longer advertise during ABC's new program "Nothing Sacred," as a result of a pressure campaign orchestrated by the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights. In the bloody arena where religious values clash with entertainment values, the New York-based Catholic League is racking up some impressive victories.Since July, the Catholic League's media-savvy president William Donohue has been engaged in a jihad against "Nothing Sacred," which airs Thursday nights at 8 p.m. He characterizes the plot -- featuring a young priest at times bedeviled by church dogma -- as "pure political propaganda" that exemplifies Hollywood's anti-religious bias and insults loyal Catholics.

His players sat silently in the corner of the locker room. Much like he did when he was a player at Maryland more than a quarter century ago, Archbishop Spalding boys basketball coach Derrick Lewis measured his words carefully before speaking. "I lost a bunch of games over a long career, but I never gave up," Lewis said in a low, but forceful voice. "A lot of you guys gave up tonight. " A few minutes before, Loyola embarrassed the Cavaliers, 69-49, on Senior Night. Lewis used the loss as an opportunity to give his players a bit of a history lesson, recalling his junior year in College Park, which was Bob Wade's first season as coach.

Already disappointed with the way the team played in losing to the Patriots in last weekend's Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference title game, Mount St. Joseph coach Pat Clatchey opened up his bag of tricks at the halftime break.

The Calvert Hall boys basketball team spent part of Monday at Loyola's gym, but the typical intensity that comes when the rivals are together was nowhere to be found. Instead, there was common ground. The usual competitive fire will resume Thursday when the teams meet in the Baltimore Catholic League quarterfinal round. But for Calvert Hall, Loyola and the six other BCL schools Monday, it was an invaluable chance to give back. All eight teams spent the day providing various community services, paired in two and working in conjunction with the Catholic Charities of Baltimore.

But time after time this season, the Mount St. Joseph boys basketball team has shown it isn't like most teams, and the No. 1 Gaels provided more proof Sunday at No. 2 St. Frances. Hitting big shots at one end, getting timely stops at the other and showing poise at the free-throw line throughout, the Gaels were able to come away with a 69-68 character win over the Panthers.
