52 - CAPE GTrE. Friday, January 3 - January 9, 1997 -Bobby Jacobs is the "Christo- pher" of basketball tournament directors; a veritable "Macho Man" that does the work of five people simultaneously. "I hate to admit it but I don't think I could watch another bas- ketball game," said local fan Kenny Lingo. "I stayed and watched most games until I can't even see straight any more." This year's tournament, which featured 34 teams and a sus- tained crowd approaching 2,000, went off with a minmum of secu- rity and without incident. "When you invite the best pro- grams in the country you expect class and that's what you get,"said Bobby Jacobs. When Pierre Clervoyant caught an inbounds pass to ice the Slam Dunk championship game for Saint Patricks of Eliza- beth, N.J., he was summoned to center court by tournament M.V.P. Jermaine Clark who gave him a big hug and then kissed Pierre on top of the head. Clark then motioned his team- mate towards the foul line as if to say: "Go on now, git!" Jim Smith and Don Dusias did an excellent job broadcasting games for WGMD. Sports radio journalist Dave Willauer did his usual outstand- ing job recording spot interviews with players and coaches. Local teams Delmar (Gover- nor's) and Hodgson (Mayor's) captured two of the five tropies contested. I Angie Moon photos Nan and George Hermann of Dover, directors of tourney headquarters at Slam Dunk, were honored at the Tip-Off Banquet for their tireless efforts. Andre Hutson of Ohio-based Trotwood Madison goes up for two in the overtime thriller against Germantown Academy of Philadelphia. Germantown defeated two nationally ranked teams - Lake Clifton of Baltimore and Trotwood Madison - to win the Slam Dunk Power Series. Hutson is a nationally recognized player headed for Michigan State. Colleen (1) and Susan Clark of Harbeson were part of the crowd that watched the Delaware River and Bay Authority Shot-Out games during the Slam Dunk To The Beach on Sunday, Dec. 29. Dominick Pulieri (1), president of Grotto Pizza - one of Slam Dunk's primary sponsors, and tourney director Bob Jacobs hold the Slam Dunk Championship trophy.
