When John Innocenzo holds tryouts for the Paul VI boys' basketball team this fall, the irony will not be lost on him. Innocenzo, who graduated from Paul VI in 1987 but played only as a freshman, was named the Eagles' coach yesterday. "My sophomore year, for whatever reason, I didn't try out," said Innocenzo, 28. "I missed basketball immediately. I became a gym rat. " But when Innocenzo tried out as a junior, he played poorly and was cut. As a senior, he also was cut when the coaches decided that he was not worth taking on for just one year.

The result was different, too. Immaculate Heart won, 4-2, to capture the title at Trenton State. "After three years of seeing (Camden Catholic)

Nobody hands out any hardware in the middle of January. Nobody is crowned midseason champion. Nobody even cares, come March, what team was playing at the highest level after nine or 10 games. But some team has to be No. 1 in South Jersey just as the conference schedules start to heat up and just as everybody begins to jostle for seeding before the tournament cutoff date. Somebody has to be The Team To Beat. It says here that team is Paul VI after an impressive week in which the Eagles beat two of the top six squads in South Jersey by a combined 27 points.

All of Roosevelt Cubbage's size and strength wasn't worth anything in the second quarter, because the Paul VI senior spent all eight minutes on the bench with two fouls. "Very frustrating," Cubbage said of his front-row seat during Paul VI's clash with Shawnee in an Olympic Conference interdivision boys' basketball game Tuesday night. The 6-foot-5, 225-pound Cubbage made up for lost time in the second half. He collected nine points and nine rebounds as undefeated Paul VI pulled away for a 59-43 victory before a large crowd in the Eagles' gymnasium.

Paul VI High School announced yesterday that it was searching for a head football coach to replace Steve Locilento. Locilento's contract will not be renewed, said Sister Mary Ann Gecina, the school's athletic director. Locilento's teams went 0-27 in his three seasons as head coach. On Monday, Sister Gecina had said that a decision on rehiring Locilento would not be made for four to six weeks. She said yesterday that circumstances had caused the school to change its mind. "This decision is in no way a negative reflection on Mr. Locilento's dedication, concern and care for the team members," she said in a statement.

The connection comes from almost 10 years of playing on the same basketball team. "We're like cousins," Ivan Robinson said. "Best friends," Jay Howard added. On the court, the two described their relationship as almost telepathic. "We have that chemistry," Robinson said. "We can make eye contact and know what's coming. " Saturday night's 65-57 victory over Eastern was just Robinson's second game for the Paul VI boys' basketball team. He had to sit 30 days after transferring from Camden Catholic.

"The defense was big," Gallen said. "Those guys made every play, especially when we needed it. " Gallen, a junior righthander, pitched a six-hitter with three strikeouts as Bishop Eustace won its sixth in a row to improve to 14-5 overall and 6-1 in the division.
