"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.

Villanova University breaking its Sweet 16 drought has been a windfall for area retailers, from Modell's to the on-campus bookstore. Since the Wildcats' upset over Kansas on Saturday to advance to the Final Four of the NCAA men's basketball tournament, top-sellers such as the $24 "I Wanna Party Like It's 1985" short-sleeve T-shirt are moving fast. The shirt refers to the last time Villanova won the national championship. Extra shipments of many items arrived Tuesday at sports retailers throughout the region, some of whom extended their hours to meet the demand this week.

CINDERELLA is charming in the first weekend, but by the time the Sweet 16 arrives, the power conferences generally take over. Despite a litany of upsets in the East Region, the four teams that have advanced to play at the Wells Fargo Center on Friday and Sunday are from either the ACC or the Big Ten. While Notre Dame doesn't have the basketball pedigree of the other three schools, it does have plenty of Philadelphia flavor. So strike up the band, break out the history books and tell the governor to get out of the way. Here are 25 things to know about this year's East Regionals.

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.
