The lonely guy: Things are much quieter for Marina basketball Coach Steve Popovich. With former standout center Cherokee Parks at Duke, Popovich's phone has stopped ringing. "You know, last year, I would get to my office and there would 12 to 13 messages, all from big-time basketball coaches," Popovich said. "This year, I seem to be off their beaten path."

Steve Popovich, who resigned as varsity basketball coach at Marina High School in May, won't be moving to Aurora, Colo., to accept a similar position after all. Popovich, 44, said Wednesday that the inability to sell his house in San Clemente led to his decision to decline an offer to coach the basketball team at Eagle Crest High. "It just didn't work out," Popovich said. "I'm looking at it (the decision not to move) as if it wasn't supposed to happen."

Hey, Georgeson. You're 6-5. Why the heck can't you rebound? Mark, you're 6-5 and you can't even dunk . You only weigh 220? You have to be at least 230 for college, you know. Did you hear what Georgeson did last night? Tried to score for the other team. Thank God he missed again. Mark Georgeson of Marina High School often reminisces about his frustrating start in basketball. He can still hear the voices from his freshman season.

He's a crafty one, they say, coaches basketball as if it were a game of chess. An offensive change here, a defensive switch there. . . . when it comes to making adjustments, county coaches say few have the knack like Marina's Steve Popovich. Isn't that right, Steve? "Ummm . . . " What was that? "Ughhh . . . " Uh-oh. We either called too early, or Popovich is still suffering over his team's 33-29 loss to Ocean View Friday night. Lucky for us, the latter seems to be the case.

Irvine High School's basketball team opened its 1985-86 season on Saturday advertised as the best team in the school's nine-year history, and the Vaqueros lived up to the billing with a 63-50 win over Marina. Irvine combined quickness, strong physical play under the boards and overall good shooting to score an easy win. Marina played well only in the second quarter and never threatened after Vaquero guard Jimmy Raye stole a pass and made a layup for a 48-35 lead to open the fourth quarter.

It starts tonight, 19-feet 9-inches from the basket. A shot that eventually may be heard around the Southern Section. The three-point shot, which can turn small teams into offensive threats, games around in the matter of minutes and coaching strategies inside out, will make its debut tonight in Cal State Fullerton's Titan Gym when the Freeway League opens with its Tipoff Classic. The Freeway League is one of two leagues in the Southern Section using the three-point shot on an experimental basis.
