PITTSBURGH - For most of the members of the Pittsburgh men's basketball team, Monday night's 79-59 victory over Maryland was about continuing to make a good first impression in the Atlantic Coast Conference. For redshirt sophomore forward Durand Johnson, it was also about payback. "Me and Nick [Faust], we played against each other in high school, and Nick kind of got the best of us [Lake Clifton], so I had that on my mind," Johnson said. "I always had a chip on my shoulder. I was like, 'Tonight's the night where I show I can play too.' "I really looked forward to this game.

Durand Johnson scanned the gym and saw the college basketball coaches walking in with notepads. It was two years ago in July, and the attentive group was at a summer-league game to see the opposing team's point guard, which was just fine with Johnson. Playing in his last game that season for the Cecil Kirk 16-under Amateur Athletic Union team, he hit some 3s, showed off a mid-range jumper and attacked the rim. Most importantly, Johnson confidently turned the corner. "Going into that game, I just felt if I really wanted to get successful with basketball, this was my chance to show what I got. This is where I show people that I'm an elite player.

Sharp.The first in a production line of 30 post-graduation ceremonies at the Naval Academy Chapel in Annapolis had no singing relatives, no poetry readings, no rose petals in the aisles yesterday.

QUICK! HOW do you get not one, but two lawyers to work for you, and pro bono at that? Why, be a juvenile offender, of course. At least that's the take of Mark and Cheryl Lecates, a Hampden couple whose 12-year-old daughter was shot in the mouth with a BB gun last month. As far as the Lecates are concerned, the 14-year-old accused perpetrator of the act had two attorneys. One was from the public defender's office. The other was from the state's attorney's office, which, in theory, was supposed to have the back of Kristen Lecates, the victim of the crime.

GUANTANAMO BAY, Cuba -- U.S. military pathologists examined and tested clinical data yesterday obtained from autopsies of three prisoners who hanged themselves here Saturday, while human rights advocates warned of the potential for more suicides by prisoners with little hope of release or legal recourse. Officials of the military prison and interrogation network were reviewing detention procedures to determine what changes might be necessary to avert further suicide attempts and to modify guard routines to prevent prisoners from knowing when they might be observed, said Cmdr.

Sugar-Coated Myths about Castro and CubaI am a senior electrical engineering major at Morgan State University. This letter is in response to one written by Cliff DuRand ("Clinton Should Ignore Myths about Cuba," Sept. 3).The reason I am writing is that I feel the sheer weight of the inaccuracies in his letter compelled me to answer him.Mr. DuRand, in an attempt to explain the reasons for the Cuban exodus, uses the most convoluted and backward reasoning I have ever heard.First he says, "In spite of the best efforts of the world's greatest superpower, 35 years later not only is Castro still in power, but the social project of the revolution remains immensely popular -- even among those now leaving."
