"Tis the season for scholastic holiday basketball tournaments, and Roman Catholic and Camden find themselves in the enviable position of being entrants in the McDonald's-Iolani Prep Classic in Honolulu. Roman, the defending Philadelphia Catholic League champion, and Camden, the defending state Group 4 champion in New Jersey, will join Flint Hill Prep of Virginia, Monsignor McClancy Memorial High of New York and a pair of California teams - Simi Valley and St. Bernard's - in the 12-team tournament, which begins Thursday.

Remember last March, when there appeared to be a good chance a hint of sanity would finally come to Public League basketball for 2011-12? So much for that . . . Robert Coleman, the czar of PL sports, announced yesterday that only two of last season's 68 teams have vanished - Horace Furness and W.B. Saul. Coleman said Furness has entered into a cooperative sponsorship with Southern. It's hoped, he added, one between Saul and Roxborough will be finalized shortly. Multiple sources last winter claimed Coleman was looking to reduce the number of teams to 50. Though he did not confirm that number then, Coleman did not dispute it while saying, "I will be meeting with the higher-ups in the school district and we'll come up with a plan that's just and right.

ON DEC. 8, the young men of the Mathematics, Civics and Sciences Charter School's basketball team are slated to play their first game of the season at their home gym. The problem is, they don't have a home gym. Or any gym. For the past five years, the charter school, on Broad Street near Buttonwood across from the School District of Philadelphia headquarters, has paid $1,200 a month to use the gym at the Berean Institute, a barber school at...

TONY CARR is as cool as they come. There isn't much flash or panache to the Roman Catholic junior, but if you need an important basket, rebound or pass, chances are you won't find safer hands. At 6-4 and 175 pounds, Cool Hand Carr - the city's most versatile point guard - helped the Cahillites hoard every championship possible this season. That's why Carr, in conjunction with the Daily News All-City team, is our Player of the Year. The North Philadelphia resident (15th and York streets)

There is a lot of praise that can be heaped on the Neumann-Goretti girls' basketball team, but one must start with the fact that it completed a 30-0 season in dominating fashion. N-G cemented its status as the no-doubt-about-it best team in Southeastern Pennsylvania, and earned bragging rights as the top squad in the nation in several polls. The Saints are a no-brainer choice as The Inquirer's Southeastern Pennsylvania girls' basketball team of the year. With at least six Division I recruits, the Saints have talent, and then some.

Basketball, wrestling, and indoor track teams in the Colonial Conference and Cape-Atlantic League will be able to start practice on Nov. 24. The same likely will be true for many teams in the Burlington County Scholastic League. But teams in the Olympic Conference will have to wait a week and won't be able to start the winter season until Dec. 1. That staggered start is a result of a decision made by the Olympic Conference to overrule a pilot program established by the NJSIAA in September to allow boys' and girls' basketball teams to start practice on the Monday before Thanksgiving.

Joe Crispin wanted to start his coaching career. He figured two jobs would be better than one. Crispin, the former Pitman High School and Penn State star, was hired by Rowan University as an assistant coach for both the men's and women's basketball teams, the school announced Tuesday. "I'm going to be busy," Crispin said. "But I'm not afraid of that. " Crispin was one of the best guards in South Jersey basketball history, scoring more than 2,651 career points and leading Pitman to the Group 1 state title as a senior in 1997.

SAINT JOSEPH'S basketball was successful before 1955 and it has been successful since 1966. The "Mighty Mites" of the 1930s were a precursor to the Jameer Nelson teams of the early 2000s. St. Joe's basketball has always been special. It was never more special or more successful than it was from 1955 to 1966, when 1949 St. Joseph's College graduate Jack Ramsay changed the way basketball on Hawk Hill was played and perceived. When the NCAA Tournament was a small club with fewer than 30 teams invited, automatically or otherwise, Ramsay's Hawks teams were there every year from 1959 to 1963 and again in 1965 and 1966.

The spotlighted court once again will ride amid the darkness of the arena like the gleaming deck of a great ship at sea as the basketball teams claw each other through the four days and nights, and it will all still look very much like the Big East tournament. In fact, it is the Big East tournament, and it is Madison Square Garden, and many of the usual suspects are still on hand as the league works to reestablish its place in the college basketball firmament. A year ago, eight teams would exit the Big East championship and take their places in the field of the NCAA tournament.

The tiny gym at the Jack M. Barrack Hebrew Academy doesn't have any bleachers. Truth be told, there would be little use for them anyway. The crowds for basketball games at the school's Bryn Mawr campus often can be counted on a few sets of hands. One Saturday night a year, though, they ring the floor with chairs two-deep, and the referees look the other way as a throng crams in behind the baskets. Even then, there's usually not enough room for everyone who wants to see. The occasion that transforms this small, academically rigorous school into a scene out of Friday Night Lights is a visit from its neighbor, religious cousin, and constant rival, Kohelet Yeshiva.

IT WAS AN hour after La Salle had won its third NCAA game in 5 days. The interviews were over. The locker room was empty. The bus was waiting to take the team back to its hotel in Kansas City. Plans were being finalized for an airplane trip to Los Angeles the next day for a Sweet 16 date with Wichita State in 4 days. John Giannini realized at that moment he had not taken a single second to savor what his La Salle team had been doing from Wednesday in Dayton to Friday and Sunday at the Sprint Center.
