Camden Catholic coach Jim Crawford yesterday was reprimanded and fined $200 for an incident that occurred during a boys' basketball game with Camden on Jan. 19 at Camden Catholic in Cherry Hill. The executive committee of the Olympic Conference, which took the action against the coach, also asked for heightened security for the game between the two teams on Tuesday. The game is scheduled to be played at Camden. Camden player Monte Williams has said that he was slapped by Crawford as he stood along the sideline near the Camden Catholic bench in the first half of the Jan. 19 game, which was won by Camden, 72-69.

Camden Catholic boy's basketball coach Jim Crawford drew up a play before the opening tap Saturday night when his team faced Lenape. The play was designed to win the tap and set up senior center Anthony Tassone with a pass down low for an easy layup. It took all of ten seconds for it to be carried out to perfection and the Irish were on their way to a 67-54 win, presenting Crawford with his 400th victory. It was fitting that win No. 400 would start out that way, a far cry from the way his coaching career began as Camden Catholic's J.V. coach during the 1975-76 season.

Camden High basketball player Monte Williams filed simple-assault charges yesterday in Cherry Hill Municipal Court against Camden Catholic coach Jim Crawford. The charges came one day after Crawford allegedly slapped Williams during a boys' basketball game at Camden Catholic in Cherry Hill. Cherry Hill court administrator Joan Rifkin said the complaint says that Crawford "was involved in an act of disorderly conduct by engaging in fighting or threatening behavior" toward the player.

Kevin Crawford and Tim Bieg saunter into Room 103, a classroom at Camden Catholic near the gym. Dressed in their practice gear, they really don't look or act much like the two guys who make up one of the best backcourts in South Jersey. There's Bieg, who says he's "5-10, 5-11," and is topped off by a mop of bushy brown hair. And there's Crawford, who distractedly fiddles with the tag of the Camden Catholic Basketball sweatshirt he has just received. In a politician's double-speak, he says, "I'm listed at 6-1," which gets a laugh out of his buddy.

Last summer, it wasn't unusual for Camden Catholic's Tim Bieg and Kevin Crawford to play three basketball games in an evening. And they would play the three games in three different leagues. So it's no wonder that the juniors have become such a cohesive guard duo. The two played about 60 games together last summer. Throw in the 26 varsity games they played together as a sophomore starting backcourt, and it's easy to see why the Irish's guards have been doing well. Each has a sixth sense for where the other is on the court.

Anthony Jeune, a standout senior basketball player at Camden Catholic, was seriously injured in a car accident Friday night and was in a coma last night at Cooper University Hospital in Camden, Irish coach Jim Crawford said before last night's game against Collingswood in the Cherry Hill East Invitational. A nursing supervisor at Cooper said last night that Jeune was in critical condition. Jeune, a 6-foot-3 swingman who has signed with Fairleigh Dickinson University, scored 13 points and hit three three-point shots Friday in the Irish's 64-37 win over visiting Camden County Tech.

The makeshift court in the Crawford basement had a plastic garbage can with the bottom cut out as the hoop, a volleyball, and a ceiling so low that 6-foot-4 Jim Crawford had to play on his knees. Even then, the 7- and 5-year-old sons who were still trying to master addition and ABCs didn't figure to be much of a match for the elder Crawford. "Of course, they would run me off picks, like poles and refrigerators," Crawford said laughing, "and they would find a way to win. " Both of those former basement prodigies, Kevin and Matt Crawford, graduated to the real thing - regulation hoops, a basketball, and a court whose ceiling allows more than just line-drive shots - and Matt Crawford is now finding ways to win at Camden Catholic.

It was a shot the opposing coach didn't mind seeing. It was a shot his coach wasn't all that comfortable with. It was a shot Takwail Bailey will remember forever. Bailey's Camden High team had pretty much controlled the first 3 1/2 quarters of its 63-52 victory over host Camden Catholic yesterday afternoon, thanks in large part to the determined play of Aaron Walton-Moss. But a 7-0 spurt by the Irish had pulled them within six at 52-46 with 3 minutes, 35 seconds to go in regulation.

Tonight, when Camden Catholic basketball coach Jim Crawford looks down the floor of the Izod Center at opponent Trenton Catholic, the resemblance will be hard to ignore. "There are a lot of similarities between the two of us," Crawford said. "We have experience, they have experience. We have balanced scoring, they have balanced scoring. We have good size inside; they have good size inside. They don't mind a slow tempo; we don't mind a slow tempo. " All of which means the NJSIAA Tournament of Champions final in East Rutherford, N.J., between top-seeded Camden Catholic and second-seeded Trenton Catholic could be one of the most evenly matched title games in the history of the tournament.

On the day that Kevin Crawford set a school record for assists, he starred in a defensive role. Crawford's first-half coverage of 6-foot-4 sharpshooter Jeff Klauder helped Camden Catholic to a 72-51 nonleague basketball victory yesterday over Washington Township. The Irish, ranked No. 2 in South Jersey by The Inquirer, are 8-1 and have won six in a row since an 83-66 loss to St. Peter's of New York. Township, which went 20-4 last season but was decimated by graduation, fell to 5-4 by losing its third straight game.

A year ago, the Camden Catholic boys' basketball team was the toast of South Jersey, not to mention the best team. The Irish went 29-2, won the state Non-Public A title, and advanced to the Tournament of Champions final before losing to Trenton Catholic. It was a memorable season for Irish fans. Unfortunately for them, the season also took away all five senior starters. This season, the Irish were nowhere to be seen in the Inquirer preseason rankings. The word rebuilding was being suggested, but we should have known better.

Camden Catholic boys' basketball coach Jim Crawford has the same pregame outlook for tonight's 8 p.m. Tournament of Champions final against Trenton Catholic that he did before competing in the state Non-Public A championship game. Will the result be similar? Despite being the No. 1 seed, Crawford said that Camden Catholic (29-1) shouldn't earn the favorite's role against Non-Public B state champion and second-seeded Trenton Catholic (27-3). And he's probably right. Before the state final against St. Peter's Prep, Crawford also said his team was the slight underdog, and again that was no stretch.

The quiet sessions of dissecting an opponent have become longer this season for Camden Catholic boys' basketball coach Jim Crawford. It seems that Crawford can't push the stop button on the tape; instead he rewinds it time and time again, looking for that extra edge in scouting. When it comes to preparation, Crawford has always been known for never allowing a single corner to be unturned, but this season, somehow, he has taken things a step further, if that is possible. For somebody with a 659-209 career record, there have been a lot of successful scouting sessions, yet Crawford felt an obligation to do even more this season.

The first time Kevin Crawford surveyed the basketball program at Pitman, he found his mind at odds with what his eyes were telling him about Luke Dickson. Crawford, the son of Camden Catholic head coach Jim Crawford, spent six seasons at Sterling before he became Pitman's head coach last year. The younger Crawford has been around basketball his whole life and acknowledged that more than a couple of offensive sets at Pitman have a distinct green-and-gold look to them. So when he watched the then-sophomore Dickson, he saw a top-flight point guard with all the skills necessary to compete at most any level.

Jim Crawford has had countless highlights in his coaching career at Camden Catholic, so it stands to reason that this year was a special team, judging by the coach's postgame comments last night. "This was one of my proudest moments in high school education; I was proud to be surrounded by these guys all season," Crawford said after fifth-seeded Christian Brothers Academy defeated his sixth-seeded Irish team, 42-37, in the South Jersey Non-Public A final at Lakewood High School.
