After 43 years in basketball, the last 29 at Princeton, has Pete Carril had enough? Obviously not. Carril, who retired as the Princeton coach after the NCAA Tournament, is joining the Sacramento Kings as an assistant coach. A job title? "Godfather," replied Kings vice president Geoff Petrie, who played for Carril at Princeton. "He has one of the best minds in basketball, he's a great resource. He sees a different game than a lot of people. " Carril accompanied Petrie and Kings head coach Garry St. Jean to the opening of the NBA's predraft camp Tuesday night at Moody Bible Institute.

Jabari Smith should thank Sacramento assistant Pete Carril, the former Princeton Tigers coach. Because of Carril, Smith remains a member of the 76ers. After the Kings released Smith last month, Carril suggested to Larry Brown that the Sixers, who had a roster spot open, pick up the second-year center out of Louisiana State. The coach did. On Monday, the Sixers guaranteed his salary for the remainder of this season. "He's a good, young, talented kid that Pete Carril told me to sign," Brown said last night before the Sixers played Orlando.

Pete Carril, a living legend, will be part of the Western Conference coaching staff in tomorrow's NBA All-Star Game. Carril, who kept the spirit of five-man concepts and the backdoor cut alive for so long as the Princeton coach, is one of Sacramento Kings coach Rick Adelman's assistants. Adelman is coaching the West against 76ers coach Larry Brown's East. Each coach brings along his team's staff of assistants. "I hope Pete is really excited," Adelman said. "He's done everything in his career collegewise; to give him a chance to be on the staff at an NBA All-Star Game, I hope that tops off things.

Ralph Lewis, once called "the greatest walk-on since Neil Armstrong" when he made the La Salle University team as a freshman in 1981-82, has done it again. This time, Lewis, now 34, has walked on to the coaching staff of the Sacramento Kings, hired by Eddie Jordan. Jordan is starting his first full season after replacing the fired Garry St. Jean. Before hiring Lewis, Jordan said he considered former 76ers coach Johnny Davis. "A year ago, Ralph assisted me during the predraft camp in Chicago," Jordan recalled.

YOU HAVE to wonder about any place that would have a picture of me hanging on one of its storied walls. A much younger picture of me. Just for doing my job. The truth is, I probably should have paid for the privilege. I didn't really know much about the soul of the Palestra until I started covering college basketball games there. You can only get so much as a kid watching on TV. But to be even a small part of it was totally my pleasure. And honor. I'm sure the many colleagues who share that piece of history with me would heartily concur.

They ran the most fundamental of basketball plays, but, thanks to their rumpled elf of a coach, the Princeton Tigers somehow elevated the simple pick-and-roll and the backdoor cut to art forms. Pete Carril coached Princeton for 30 seasons, in which he established both himself and his highly disciplined system as symbols of stability in the constantly changing world of college basketball. When he retired after the 1995-96 season - the highlight of which was an upset of defending national champion UCLA in the first round of the NCAA Tournament - he left a void many believed no one would ever quite fill.

Moments before tipoff, St. Joseph's athletic director, Don DiJulia, gave Pete Carril a Hawks sweater as a gift so he would remember his first visit to the Fieldhouse. The revered and rumpled Princeton coach smiled, nodded in appreciation, then sat through 40 minutes of agony, watching St. Joe's take away everything else he had. St. Joe's opened its season - one with lofty expectations - in a game that had its spasms, here and there. But the Hawks simply had too much depth, muscle and experience as they eased past Princeton, 58-38, before a capacity crowd on Hawk Hill.

Bill Carmody is 19 games into his first season as the successor to legendary Princeton basketball coach Pete Carril, and all is well in Tigerland. At 16-3 overall and atop the Ivy League with a 6-0 mark, Princeton is turning out to be the team everyone was expecting when Carril retired last spring after 29 seasons. The Tigers returned all but one player after going 22-7 and finishing as Ivy League cochampions with Penn. Also back was Carmody, who spent 14 years at Carril's side.

Twenty-nine seasons at Princeton, Pete Carril never had a desk to call his own. He does now. "And it's messy, too," said Carril, in his first season as an assistant coach with the Sacramento Kings. He was on the bench Sunday night, wearing one of his trademark bow ties, for a 107-106 win over the 76ers at Sacramento. "All the years I was coaching at Princeton, I didn't want [a desk]," he said, laughing. "I'd put a chair between my secretary and my assistant, go to the left if I wanted one thing, to the right if I wanted another.

One year out of Princeton, Chris Mooney was a high school basketball head coach. Now, the 1994 Princeton graduate is a college head coach. Mooney, an Archbishop Ryan alumnus, has been named Beaver College's coach. As much as Mooney looks forward to coaching at the college level at the Glenside school, parting with his team at Lansdale Catholic wasn't easy. "Lansdale Catholic was a perfect fit: good, hard-working kids who were receptive to coaching and discipline," Mooney said.

PRINCETON, N.J. - Pete Carril, 76, was seated at a table in the Princeton Diner on Route 1 Tuesday morning when the "Princeton offense" came up. "I resent the use of the words 'Princeton offense,' " Carril, not coaching this year for the first time in more than a half-century, said. "At first, it was like a novelty, made you feel good. " Now? "I'd like to see them bury that name, the Princeton offense," Carril said. "I'm ready to get the shovel out, get the casket, let's get a skeleton in there and throw them in the ground.

Inside the narrow chest of boyish-faced Brian Earl beats the heart of a run-and-gun, crossover-dribbling, shoot-'em-up street-ball urchin. Of course, none of that is permitted in the highly disciplined way basketball is played at Princeton. "I don't want to bash the Princeton offense. It's done wonders for us," Earl said yesterday, the day after the 6-foot-2 junior guard's 21 points and deadly long-range shooting helped the fifth-seeded Tigers (27-1) defeat Nevada-Las Vegas, 69-57, to set up today's NCAA second-round matchup with fourth-seeded Michigan State (21-7)

When Don Harnum needed a start in coaching, Kevin Bannon was there. When Harnum met his future wife, Janet, Bannon and his wife were there to introduce them. When Don and Janet got married, Bannon was there as the best man. Oddly enough, Harnum finally has gotten his big break because Bannon no longer is there. When Bannon left Rider this month to become the Rutgers coach, it cleared the way for the 33-year-old Harnum to accept his first head coaching job. No one is happier than the man Harnum assisted for the last 10 years.
