Few American musicians in recent years have captured the popular imagination the way the young American pianist Awadagin Pratt has. Pratt, who became the first African-American classical instrumentalist to win an important international competition when he took first prize in the Naumburg Competition a few seasons back, cuts a striking figure. How many classical pianists have the face of a matinee idol, the body of a prizefighter, wear such unconventional concert garb and have dreadlocks to boot?

As a result of opening the season with seven consecutive wins en route to a 9-2 overall record and a 3-1 mark in the Atlantic Coast Conference, No. 6 Maryland has not had to worry too much about its postseason fate. That level of comfort, however, could be detrimental to the Terps. They have split their last four games, a stretch capped by Saturday's 11-6 loss to No. 5 Johns Hopkins. The Blue Jays (8-3) collected a victory that they sorely needed to avoid repeating last year's absence from the NCAA tournament, and Maryland coach John Tillman said his players could not match the intensity and effort put forth by Johns Hopkins.

"It's crazy," Josh Charles said in a telephone interview with The Sun late Monday night. "I didn't know it would be this intense -- the kindness and emotion of the emails, the tweets and the texts. It's like you get to watch your life after you're dead. It's bittersweet, but it's really, really special. " Josh Charles has been living in a rare and weird cultural space since Will Gardner, the character he played so compellingly the last five years on CBS, died in Sunday night's episode of "The Good Wife.

Bloody, repellent and relentlessly violent, the miniseries "Intensity" carries a TV-14 rating and the advisory that "parental discretion is advised."Gee, Fox, thanks for nothing.The four-hour production that airs tonight and tomorrow deserved the stronger TV-M (for mature audiences) and a blatant warning: "DON'T LET CHILDREN WATCH."Under the revised content ratings going into effect Oct. 1, "Intensity" would deserve an alphabet soup: V (for violence), L (for coarse language), D (for suggestive dialogue)

When Midori, then 19, played Brahms' Violin Concerto with the Baltimore Symphony and music director David Zinman five years ago, her performance was filled with nervous intensity that made the piece fly like the wind. She joined Zinman and the orchestra last night in the same Brahms concerto in Meyerhoff Hall in the BSO's season-opening concert to give a performance that could not have been more different.The intensity -- even more of it, perhaps -- is still there. But now it is tragic intensity, and it produced a reading that flowed like molten lava.

One of the great mysteries of modern times has little to do with how to set the clock on the DVD recorder or even how Britney Spears still has a career to speak of, but rather how a high school football coach can get his players to do the same thing successfully from game to game or even from practice to practice on a repeated and regular basis. Poly's Roger Wrenn and Edmondson's Dante Jones are left to ponder that question in the wake of the Engineers' 38-14 rout of the Red Storm on Friday at Edmondson.

As a coach in Milwaukee 10 years ago, Andy Etchebarren remembers a rookie catcher for the Brewers who was so unforgiving of himself, he expected to get a hit every time he stood at the plate, expected to throw out every runner who tried to steal. And if he failed, he seethed."He's still a grinder," Etchebarren, now the Orioles' bench coach, said this week. "But he's better about stuff like that than he was then."Not that B. J. Surhoff has gone soft.In his second season with the Orioles, Surhoff is many things: starting left fielder, occasional DH, fill-in at three infield positions, producer of line drives and RBIs.

ATHENS - So the U.S. men's basketball team does possess some intensity. The players tapped the button yesterday, averted embarrassment and took an 89-79 victory over Australia at the Helliniko Indoor Arena. Tim Duncan scored 18 points and grabbed 11 rebounds, Allen Iverson contributed 16 points and Shawn Marion finished with 16 points and eight rebounds as Team USA outscored Australia 24-12 in the fourth quarter. Marion, inserted into the starting lineup in the second half, led the U.S. comeback, helping the team switch from passive to intense.

COLLEGE PARK - Throughout most of Gary Williams' 22 seasons as Maryland's coach, and for parts of Mark Turgeon's first two years, the Terps often played with a proverbial chip on their collective shoulder. With many of Williams' early teams, the chip was more like a boulder. But as the on-paper talent has improved under Turgeon, the grit and toughness has slowly disappeared. If there has been a chip this season, it has been almost pebble-sized. Maryland (11-8, 3-3 Atlantic Coast Conference)

It's a small room, but it has plenty of potential, tucked away beyond the lines of traditional treadmills and weight machines at the Maryland Athletic Club Express in Hunt Valley. The room is filled with some items you expect to see at any gym - a rowing machine, a weighted ball, a punching bag - and some you might not: thick battle ropes and TRX suspension straps hanging from the ceiling. Each of the students in personal trainer Doug Bopst's boot camp class last week used one of these pieces of equipment for a minute-long interval.

A second burst of snow in three days is forecast Tuesday, potentially lengthening the weekend for schoolchildren one more day and clouding the morning commute. Several inches of snow, with smaller chances of half a foot or slightly more, are forecast over a few hours starting after daybreak. Forecasters and transportation officials cautioned that snow could accumulate at rates of an inch or two per hour, faster than snowplows can keep up with, in the midst of rush hour. If that is the case, officials urged drivers to delay travel or risk getting stuck.

General Douglas MacArthur, in being relieved of his command by President Harry Truman in the Korean War, famously declared that "old soldiers never die, they just fade away. " The last part of that has most often applied as well to defeated presidential nominees. F. Scott Fitzgerald somewhat similarly noted in "The Last Tycoon" that "there are no second acts in American lives" -- an observation that also could be said in politics of most also-rans in presidential sweepstakes.

The roots of Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds' development in running out of his team's triple-option offense go back to his own roots outside Nashville, Tenn. On a hot summer day when Reynolds was about 13, he joined his uncle and a group of older athletes Andrew Reynolds was training for a high school track team he coached. "I wasn't sure what to expect, but I'll just say I couldn't finish it," Keenan Reynolds recalled this week. "I was hyperventilating. He didn't take it easy because it was my first time out. He treated me like I was a seasoned vet out there.

With Morgan State winless after five games and 0-1 in Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference play, Florida A&M seemingly would be favored to win Saturday's game at Hughes Stadium in Baltimore. That, however, is not the approach Rattlers coach Earl Holmes is taking. After all, Florida A&M is only 1-3 and has dropped its past three games, most recently a 76-0 loss to then-No. 4 Ohio State on Sept. 21. So the idea that the Rattlers are catching the Bears at the right time was preposterous to Holmes.

Don't lose the intensity."Alas, Irvin probably won't be satisfied when he reads the Sunday papers, listens to the radio talk shows or watches the TV news.He and Dallas Cowboys teammate Erik Williams were presumed guilty.And now that they're innocent -- cleared of rape charges -- the number of people who should be embarrassed is almost too lengthy to include in this column.

Run production hasn't been an issue for the Glen Burnie softball team this season, except when Northeast freshman Heather Brown is pitching. Finding the corners with a mix of pitches, Brown stymied the No. 2 Gophers a second time this spring, leading the No. 4 Eagles to a 2-0 win in Anne Arundel County play yesterday in Pasadena. Junior center fielder Jill Mullan drove in the winning run with a triple in the bottom of the sixth and also scored the insurance run. It was plenty for Brown, who scattered three hits and struck out seven to put Northeast at 10-1 on the season and 8-1 in league play.

Sometimes, Maryland defensive line coach Greg Gattuso will lapse back to when he was a howling bear of a head coach stalking the sidelines as if looking for prey. Gattuso coached Duquesne for 12 seasons, and - while he understands his role is more limited at Maryland - he never relinquished his passion or his penchant for looking at the big picture. It's who he is. "I was very aggressive as a head coach," said Gattuso, 51, a former defensive tackle who played for the late Joe Paterno on Penn State's 1982 national championship team and remained loyal to the coach.
