University of Virginia coach Dom Starsia recruited Bryant coach Mike Pressler as a high school player, and the two have remained close. If Pressler stays at Bryant, the Bulldogs will become a factor in Division I lacrosse, Starsia said. "I think Mike is having a blast right now, building from scratch and taking it to Division I," Starsia said. "If they can keep him, which means one of the traditional big boys doesn't lure him away, he will take that Bryant program very close to its potential.

Bryant's men's lacrosse team is one step closer to winning the Northeast Conference's first automatic qualifier to the NCAA tournament after knocking off Sacred Heart, 11-9, on Thursday in Providence, R.I. For the Bulldogs, one of the more impressive turnarounds is nearly complete after the preseason NEC favorite started 0-7, losing six of those games by one or two goals, including two near misses vs. likely tournament teams Bucknell and Albany....

The Janos Starker-Menahem Pressler show came to the Johns Hopkins University Saturday night in the first concert of the Shriver Hall Concert Series' 25th year and brought to mind how eloquently the two contradicted an old ditty by Walter Learned:"This world is a difficult world, indeed,And people are hard to suit,And the man who plays on the violinIs a bore to the man with the flute."Before a full appreciative house, the rather stern-looking cellist Starker and his frequent piano partner Pressler, every pore animated, made fine music together respecting each other's styles in a 90-minute concert of Brahms, Heiden and Beethoven duet sonatas.

PHILADELPHIA - Whatever happens today when Johns Hopkins tries to win the school's eighth national championship, Blue Jays coach Dave Pietramala dismissed the idea that his team would have a hard time getting up for the contest, given the emotionally exhausting nature of Saturday's 9-8 overtime victory over Virginia. And whatever happens as Duke plays in its first title game, coach Mike Pressler laughed off any talk that his team is better rested than Hopkins for a game that comes after one day of preparation.

For the last two weeks, the son of Gap's founders and the board's chairman, Robert J. Fisher, conducted a series of secret conference calls with fellow directors. The topic: whether to fire Gap's embattled chief executive, Paul S. Pressler. On Friday, Fisher delivered the board's decision to Pressler: He was out. The 50-year-old former Disney executive did not put up much of a fight, according to a person briefed on the matter. Yesterday, Pressler stepped down after Gap's third dismal holiday shopping season, in what the company described as a "mutual" decision.

Cellist Janos Starker and pianist Menachem Pressler -- without question, two giants of the subtle art of chamber music performance -- opened the 25th season of Johns Hopkins University's Shriver Hall Music Series Saturday.Their program offered three of the cello and piano literature's most rewarding masterpieces: the Brahms Sonata in E minor, Opus 38, Beethoven's A major sonata, Opus 69, and a sonata composed for Mr. Starker in 1958 by the American Bernhard Heiden.Nevertheless, this sure artistic investment did not repay the expected handsome dividends.

Duke is far from bereft of a lacrosse tradition, but it's one whose highlights go back many decades.The championship team of 1946 handled Maryland. Five years later, the Blue Devils beat Johns Hopkins and Navy and were voted No. 2 in the USILA rankings. However, the program slipped and was relegated to club status in 1965, and it was another two decades before the sport took off again in Durham."There was moderate success in the 1980s, but all the ingredients were here," said Mike Pressler, the Duke coach since 1991.

DURHAM, N.C. -- Following a 10-5 loss at Duke yesterday, Loyola lacrosse players have to be wondering: "What are we doing wrong?"The Greyhounds, ranked fourth in the nation, have lost three straight after starting the season at 6-0. They have scored only 19 goals in those losses, after averaging more than 15 goals a game when they were winning.Loyola coach Dave Cottle thinks he knows what the problem is, but he's not sure he can do anything about it."I'm discouraged by the lack of fight in our players," Cottle said.

The Duke men's lacrosse team returned to the field yesterday with a triumphant 17-11 victory over Dartmouth. A cool sun was shining on Durham, N.C., and 6,485 fans showed up, nearly setting a school record. At the same time, nearly 700 miles up the coast, 610 fans braved near-freezing temperatures to watch Bryant University fall, 6-5, to visiting Adelphi. More on Duke Defiance and sadness linger as Blue Devils lacrosse team returns with 17-11 win over Dartmouth in season opener. Pg 1a Rick Maese -- Points after Boo birds: It must be nice to build your pedestal just high enough so that you don't have to hear those dissenters shout from down below.

The opening of a new concert hall is like a pre-ultrasound-era birth - you never know in advance what you're going to get. In the case of the rooftop Performing Arts Theater at the University of Baltimore's angular, glass-wrapped, $20 million Student Center on Mount Royal Avenue, preliminary indications were positive for a distinctive acoustical space. With only 200 seats and a slender, unfussy, high-ceilinged design, the hall looks like it can deliver a superior sonic experience. After Tuesday night's inaugural concert, I'd say it has fallen a little short, but remains promising.

PRESIDENTS Nixon, Reagan and Bush wanted to "zero out" public broadcasting. Now, it tops the hit list of the Grinchniks in the 104th Congress. Behind the smoke screen about left-wing elitism, bias, and all the rest, is a shell game. The cash-and-carry wing of the Republican Party really wants to make it "a private business," strip off the assets "that make money," and gag the rest. In other words, convert it to more of what we already have.Sen. Larry Pressler, R-S.D., chairman of the Senate Commerce Committee, assures us that the "public service nature" of the service would remain.
