This season was not what Communications Tech senior Tony Parker had in mind. Until now. Parker broke his left foot in December and was out of action until six games ago. Making up for lost time, Parker led a comeback in the final quarter and the Phoenix stunned host Imhotep Charter, 66-61, in a District 12 Class AA boys' basketball semifinal and Public League second-round playoff game Tuesday. Communications Tech (17-8) will play Vaux, a 77-64 winner over Del-Val Charter, for the district Class AA title Saturday at a time and place to be determined.

Every game is a statement. The Communications Tech boys' basketball team doesn't just want to beat teams. The Phoenix want to dominate. "Everybody wants to beat us," Communications Tech point guard Antonio "Gee" Monroe said. "So we have to go out and play as hard as we can. . . . We have to go out and beat teams as much as we can. " Ben Franklin became Communications Tech's latest victim yesterday. The Phoenix rolled over the Electrons, 79-52, in a Public League C Division matchup at George Pepper Middle School.

Brandon Austin probably didn't need any special accessories to attract extra attention on the basketball court Thursday. But if anyone needed a reminder that he was the player to watch for Imhotep Charter, his fluorescent pink sneakers served notice. So did his dominant play in the second half. Austin scored 11 of his 18 points in the third quarter to lead Imhotep past Communications Tech, 66-40, in a Public League boys' basketball semifinal at Southern. Imhotep (22-4), The Inquirer's seventh-ranked team in Southeastern Pennsylvania, will go for its fourth league title in five years against Vaux on Sunday at the Liacouras Center.

WHILE WALKING through the hallways at Communications Tech these days, Tony and Terrell Parker are no longer exclusively greeted with "Twin. " Often, they're asked to open their mouths. All teeth accounted for, that's Terrell. An upper biggy missing, you're talkin' Tony. Other than that, you're on your own. Meanwhile, thank goodness basketball players wear numbers and that they can't play the exact same position. Though each identical twin goes 6-2, 175 pounds, Tony (No. 11)

SAMIR DOUGHTY led a third-quarter fastbreak down the sideline with Mike Watkins in tow, striding toward glory just a few paces behind. It was already clear that Delaware County Christian was in we're-gonna-need-a-bigger-boat territory, but the point was about to be highlighted as Doughty lofted the ball high above the rim. The duo from Math, Civics and Sciences Charter converted the alley-oop after the 6-10 Watkins sprang forth with a two-handed...

BRIHEAM ANTHONY scored 26 points and led an injury-depleted Nueva Esperanza High to a 58-55 Public League Class AAA quarterfinal upset of Boys' Latin yesterday, and has delivered the Toros two playoff wins in one season for the first time school history. However, the story behind the 6-4 senior guard's performance began nearly a month ago, when Anthony was disciplined for not handling his academic responsibilities. The Toros were stomped by John Bartram High, 68-46, on Jan. 14 with Anthony helpless on the bench.

His team was behind, Samir Doughty recalled, and it was trailing "by a lot. " The Math, Civics and Sciences junior was just an 11-year-old kid playing in the neighborhood winter league at Southwest Philly's Kingsessing Recreation Center. Then, he said, he scored 40 or 50 points, and the kid was no longer a kid. He became "The Big Ticket. " "That's what everybody around here calls me," said Doughty. "If you don't know me, you call me Samir. But, if you do, then I'm the Big Ticket.

ON NOV. 23, 2011, with Turkey Day 1 day away, David Johnson was not exactly inclined to give thanks. He woke up that morning with numbness in the right side of his mouth and when he took a look in a mirror . . . "It was like I had 20 pieces of bubblegum in there," he said, laughing. Not quite. What he had was a cyst and, boy, did it ever turn his life upside down. "Even now," he said, "I still have to take care of that area every day. I have to wash it out with saltwater.

IT'S NOT TOO often a guy can claim a win and suffer a loss in the exact same basketball game. Welcome to Terrence Brown's world.

Out front, standing with the ball and preparing to make a move, is sophomore Jordan Burney, a 6-1, 180-pound substitute guard for Conwell-Egan. Maybe 5 feet directly in front is Brown, a 6-4, 195-pound senior forward for Communications Tech.
