Frankford's Omar Askia stepped to the foul line with 30 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter Thursday and allowed his mind to wander. No longer was he about to hit two crucial foul shots to help secure the Pioneers' 68-63 victory over Bartram in the Public League Class AAAA boys' basketball final. Instead, he envisioned himself back in Frankford's gym. "I was just thinking practice. If we make the foul shots, we go home," Askia said. The senior shooting guard knocked down both of those free throws and 13 seconds later added one more.

Late in the regular season, Khayri Washington would not have been James Brown's top choice to try a game-deciding shot for Bartram. "He went through a pretty big slump for about two weeks," the coach said. "Luckily for us, he's been gradually working his way out of it. " Tuesday afternoon, in a Public League Class AAAA boys' basketball semifinal at Frankford, Washington calmly delivered a three-pointer with 13 seconds remaining to lift the turnover-plagued Braves to a 52-51 triumph over the hosts.

Before the start of the postseason, Bartram coach Lou Biester had a message for the Maroon Wave. It was short and to the point. Win four straight games, and the Maroon Wave will defend their Public League boys' basketball championship, he said. After a 66-59 quarterfinal win yesterday at Franklin Learning Center, Bartram is halfway to that goal. The victory set up a rematch with the team Bartram beat for the crown last season, Simon Gratz. That showdown is scheduled for Feb. 29 at La Salle University.

Bryce Garrett gets her intelligence and interest in the medical field from her mother, Silina. The Bartram senior gets her basketball skills and passion for the game from her father, Joe, who is also her head coach. Whether the shooting guard is on the court for the Braves (9-2) or in her favorite class, Health Related Technology, she approaches it with the same mind-set. "Wherever I go, I always think: Strive for the best," Garrett said. "It just comes from experience and what I've seen.

When Jim "Scoogie" Smith returned to the Coatesville bench in November, he had no idea his fill-in duties would last until mid-March. But Smith and the Red Raiders are very much a part of the PIAA Class AAAA boys' basketball tournament. Wednesday night, with Smith showing his usual exuberance, Coatesville built a 19-point advantage and held off Bartram, 61-52, in a second-round matchup at Norristown. Smith is filling in this season for Rick Nelms, who is on sabbatical for personal reasons.

THIS HAS not been a good week for bus drivers transporting District 12 teams to PIAA second-round playoffs. Tuesday, Carroll's guy earned a ticket for speeding en route to Coatesville. Last night, Bartram's players strolled into Norristown's gym with only 6 minutes showing on the warmup clock . . . oh, and the members of the school's small, yet boisterous student section didn't arrive until 10 minutes had been played. Only in the Cath/Pub. After the start was delayed by 12 minutes, Bartram fell to Coatesville, 61-51.

Bartram football coach Tom Bazis has reached the point in his career where he thinks he's seen everything. Twice. In a bit of deja vu, Bazis saw his team lose a touchdown to an official's whistle yesterday, and the neighborhood rivalry between Public League foes Bartram and host West Philadelphia again failed to produce a winner, ending in an 8-8 tie. All the scoring took place in the second quarter. Bartram (2-1-2 overall, 1-0-1 league) drove 50 yards in four plays, including a 43-yard pass play from Jabar Riley to Kenyon Meeks.

At John Bartram High, football season starts in January. The Braves begin their preseason conditioning earlier than most Public League teams. Hard work does pay off. Conditioning was the difference yesterday, as Bartram outlasted host Germantown with a key fourth-quarter touchdown drive to seal a 14-6 win on the turf at Johnston Memorial Stadium. The win clinched the Public League AAAA White division title for Bartram. It is Bartram's first division title in three seasons, and the first ever for Damond Warren as a head coach.

  Dozens gathered Wednesday on the steps of Bartram High - the Southwest Philadelphia school where a staffer was knocked out by a student last week - to make a plea: Help us fix this place. "You cannot teach children in an atmosphere of fear, thinking that if you reprimand a student you might get knocked upside the head," said Councilman Kenyatta Johnson, who along with the teachers' union organized the rally. That's just what happened Nov. 6, when a student sought out veteran substitute teacher Pewu Johnson after Johnson had corrected the teenager for behaving "inappropriately" with a female student in his class.

IT'S A NEW YEAR, but the fireworks at Bartram High School continue. A substitute teacher suffered a concussion Thursday after being thrown to the floor by a student. It was the third assault on a teacher at the Southwest Philadelphia school in the past month, district officials said yesterday. The teacher, whose name was not released, hit his head on the hallway floor following the assault but remained conscious, district spokesman Fernando Gallard said. The teacher was told to stay on the floor until medical help arrived and was taken to a nearby hospital and treated for a concussion.

A teacher at Bartram High School was attacked by a student and suffered a concussion this week after being thrown to the ground in an incident that was captured on video and widely shared on social media. It was the third such assault in a month at the violence-prone school, which in recent months had made some strides in safety that teachers say seem to be eroding. This week's incident happened Thursday afternoon, when a student attacked a substitute teacher who had asked him to leave a classroom earlier in the day, Philadelphia School District officials confirmed.

WITH THE WAY Qazi Jones plays football, you might not figure him for someone who is passionate about joining a helping profession. Jones, a 5-9, 165-pound senior, is an aggressive, sometimes loud-talking linebacker for Southern High. However, when he was about 11, a trip to the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia sold him on nursing. It wasn't serious, but after Jones filleted his left thumb while slicing an orange, he did require stitches. Blue scrubs were all he could recall about the female nurse whose compassionate bedside manner birthed his passion.

Southern's football team was knocking on the door Thursday night. But it was late, and the Fels defense was not in the mood for visitors. Dejohn Green stopped Martell Marshall on fourth and goal from the 2-yard line with 58 seconds left to preserve a 14-8 Public AAA Liberty victory for Fels at Northeast. Wesley White (116 rushing yards) scored his second TD earlier in the quarter to put the Panthers ahead for good. Nicholas Coffie had a 58-yard TD catch and an interception for Southern.

JOHN BARTRAM HIGH had just scored the go-ahead touchdown with 1:14 remaining last night against Simon Gratz when a Bartram assistant coach uttered prophetic words as the Braves prepared to kick off to Bulldogs senior Shawn Williams. "He's a home-run hitter," James Ockimey said. "He makes me nervous. " Seconds later, Williams fielded the kick at the 6 and motored to the 50. Just one problem: Yellow flags littered the field. A block in the back negated Williams' wheels - temporarily.

JARVIS "P.J. " Cooper wasn't even on West Philadelphia High coach Frank Steed's radar, let alone his roster before summer conditioning began in June. Cooper, who played as a senior for Frankford last season, was finished with football. That was until he came to summer conditioning with the Speedboys and asked Steed to take a chance on him. Last night, Cooper repaid the favor, scoring both of West Philly's touchdowns en route to a thrilling 12-8 nonleague triumph against Bartram under the lights at 48th and Spruce streets.

Abdul-Mubdi Muhammad makes his new job sound so simple. "What I've been charged to do," he said, "is clean up. " The only catch? The cleanup job is running Bartram High, a school so troubled that it took the attention of a city and a host of helpers to calm things after a staff member was knocked unconscious by a student in March. But the confident and cerebral Muhammad - a 35-year-old former Philadelphia School District math teacher and charter school assistant principal - is undaunted.
