You'll forgive the guys on the Imhotep Charter basketball team if they don't seem awed when they walk onto the Liacouras Center court at Temple on Saturday afternoon. "When we get there, it won't seem foreign to us," head coach Andre Noble said yesterday. "We won't be feeling any pressure. " It's not that Noble is cocky, it's just that well . . . he and his team have been there before. Twice over the last 2 years to be exact. And each time, Imhotep has won the Public League title.

Noble praised the Phoenix effort on the boards.

Imhotep Charter boys' basketball coach Andre Noble made great time as he avoided Saturday afternoon's traffic and arrived at Lower Merion in 70 minutes. Also the school's athletic director, Noble stayed for the end of the Panthers' PIAA semifinal football win just outside Reading before heading to his evening game with the Aces. And his good fortune continued as his basketball team turned back Lower Merion's late rally to win, 58-54. Senior Jakwan Jones scored eight of his 17 points in the fourth quarter.

After last year's one-point decision, it was supposed to be a tightly contested battle for top honors in Division C of the Public League. Largely because of Terrell Johnson's quickness and torrid outside shooting, it instead was a lopsided affair. With Johnson nailing four three-pointers on the way to a season-high 18 points, visiting Imhotep Charter jumped out to a 17-point lead in the first quarter and whipped bitter rival Communications Tech, 67-40, Tuesday at Pepper Middle School in Southwest Philly.

Even with the slight lead his team had at halftime of Saturday night's clash against fellow Southeastern Pennsylvania power Chester, Imhotep Charter coach Andre Noble was anything but pleased. Just ask Devin Liggeons. "He was getting on us about our intensity," the junior forward said. "He said we needed to be more physical, for us to get after it like we really wanted it. " The Panthers were considerably sharper after intermission and, in ending their losing skid against the Clippers, posted a 59-52 victory in the Kobe Bryant Scholastic Play-By-Play Classic at Harriton.

In one corner: Ss. Neumann-Goretti, the team with three consecutive Catholic League basketball championships and 54 straight league wins. In the other: Imhotep Charter, the squad with the same number of consecutive Public League titles and 55 wins in the last 57 league outings. Ding, ding, ding! . . . Almost. Nudged hard late yesterday morning by the Daily News, District 12 chairman Robert Coleman spent much of the afternoon trying to schedule a real City Title showdown between these powers for later this week.

SEAN LLOYD knew what happened almost immediately. The pain in his wrist was all too familiar and the swelling confirmed what he already diagnosed. A few choices came to mind: Alert trainers and the Imhotep coaching staff, which may have glued him to the bench; or keep on keepin' on. Last night, he stood, black cast running up his left wrist, just outside the school's gym where his healthier teammates prepared for tonight's first-round playoff game against Susquehanna Valley. The scene of the injury was Southern High, in the Class AAA Public League finale in mid-February.

HERSHEY, Pa. - Last season, the Imhotep Charter boys' basketball team claimed its third PIAA Class AA championship and second in a row. This year, in making the move up to Class AAA, the Panthers proved equal to the challenge. More than equal, actually. In an all-District 12 state final, Andre Noble's squad, spurred by 25 points from senior catalyst Brandon Austin and solid interior play, downed Archbishop Carroll, 54-45, Friday night at the Giant Center. "We felt a couple of times that we were the best team in the state, regardless of the class we were in," Noble said.

For what Imhotep Charter coach Andre Noble called "some bad practice efforts," Abraham Massaley recently lost his starting position. "I'm not used to coming off the bench," the senior guard said. "But at this point of the season, you have to put your ego aside and just play hard. " Sunday at Temple's Liacouras Center, it Massaley's late basket lifted the Panthers to a 67-66 triumph over Rysheed Jordan and never-say-die Roberts Vaux in a thrilling Public League final. His deciding field goal, on a left-side drive, came with 11 seconds to play.

'CELEBRATION" came pumping through the sound system at Temple's Liacouras Center and Abraham Massaley, like most of Imhotep Charter's delirious players, stood, listened, beamed, grooved and even sang at a spot near midcourt. Then, after some prodding by teammates, he decided to step forward and bust a move. How fitting . . . A few minutes earlier, the 5-11, 160-pound combo guard had uncorked a basketball version, thus helping the Panthers claim their fourth Public League championship in five seasons.

BRANDON AUSTIN is often so laid-back, you'd think his sport of choice would be golf. Or maybe even chess, if a special exemption could be granted to make that qualify. When he offers answers to questions, sometimes he does so with a voice that makes a whisper sound ear-splitting. Ah, but there are also stretches when his basketball play is eye-popping, and that was why so many Division I colleges wanted to add him to the fold. Austin, a 6-6, 180-pound senior, does his playing for Imhotep Charter and his next stop will be Providence.
