Shaun Brooks plays basketball with a poker face: no smiles, no frowns, no tells. But Pemberton's stoic senior let down his guard after he threw down a dunk that capped both his own sensational performance and his team's 67-62 victory over Willingboro in a triple-overtime game Tuesday night. "I just felt such relief," Brooks said of his 1,000-watt smile as Pemberton students charged the court after the Burlington County League Patriot Division battle. A 6-foot-4 swingman, Brooks scored a career-high 37 points and generated 14 rebounds and four blocks as Pemberton (19-3 overall, 9-1 Patriot)

The Eagles yesterday signed Pemberton (N.J.) High product Ed Smith, a tight end, and released recent signee Justin Swift. Smith is 30, but has just three years of pro football experience, having spent nine years playing minor league baseball as a third baseman. The Chicago White Sox signed him out of high school. After signing with the Rams as a free agent in 1996, Smith (6-3, 268 pounds) spent 1996 and '97 on the practice squads of the Redskins and Falcons, respectively. He played about half of the '97 season with the Falcons regular squad and played 15 games and all three postseason games last year during Atlanta's Super Bowl run. The Eagles also cut tackle Greg Studdard from the practice squad.

The Pemberton Township Committee decided last night to apply for membership in an insurance pool with more than 120 New Jersey municipalities. But the committee stopped short of making a commitment to join the pool until officials could discuss insurance coverage with the township's current broker. A number of towns throughout the state have been joining insurance pools in efforts to cut skyrocketing premiums. The pool Pemberton is considering would replace several township's policies, including its so-called umbrella coverage, which covers claims between $500,000 and $2 million.

The first four times that Vineland had possession of the football yesterday in its nonleague game against Pemberton, it was stopped in enemy territory on downs. As might be expected, the missed opportunities wound up costing the visiting Clan. Spurred by the play of its stubborn defense, and the pass-catching of tight end Irv Smith, Pemberton took control of the contest in the second period and coasted to 34-0 victory in the season opener for both teams. "A couple of those fourth-down plays in the first half could have turned around, and it would have been a different story," said Pemberton coach Bill McDowell.

A proposal to introduce student uniforms on a voluntary basis in the township's seven elementary schools will be voted on in the school-district elections April 21. Diane P. Stinney, the school board's vice president, introduced the proposal, which school officials say they hope will encourage the youngest students to worry more about addition than Adidas.

Napolean Suarez used to hate his first name. Mocked and teased by his friends, Suarez didn't like his name, even if it was his father's. However, as Suarez - and his friends - matured, the name bothered him less and less. Now, as a senior at Pemberton, Suarez likes his name and wants people to remember it. "Now, when people hear my name, they remember it, and I hope they remember me," Suarez said. Despite his name, Suarez has been mired in anonymity considering the success he has had as one of South Jersey's premier 400-meter intermediate hurdlers.

Midway through the first quarter, a rather frantic, repeated call came from the Cinnaminson bench: "Twenty-five is a shooter. . . . Twenty-five is a shooter. " Moments later, as if on cue, No. 25 caught a pass in rhythm and banked in a long-range three-pointer. Yes, Cinnaminson knew what Shaun Brooks could do. No, on this night, there wasn't much the Pirates could do about it. Brooks, No. 25 for the Pemberton boys' basketball team, struck for a game-high 24 points, including five three-pointers, in leading Pemberton to a comfortable, 67-54 win at Cinnaminson on Friday night.
