St. Joseph's University's struggling basketball program has taken a step toward ensuring a brighter future. Two steps, perhaps. The Daily News has learned that Hawks coach Jim Boyle yesterday signed 6-4 forward Jason Warley, who helped propel Frankford High to consecutive Public League championships and an overall 49-2 record the past two seasons. Also, Boyle now might be positioned near the head of the line of suitors for 6-7 junior Carlin Warley, Jason's brother and the Daily News City Player of the Year.

Arthur "Yah" Davis, an exciting guard whose basketball days at St. Joseph's University took him from star to star-crossed, was hospitalized yesterday after experiencing a medical emergency. According to his agent, Glenn Schwartzman, Davis had "an adverse reaction to Excedrin. " He added, "But I won't know the full extent of what happened until [today], when the doctors give me the results of tests. " A spokeswoman at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania said last night that Davis was in fair condition in the intermediate medical intensive care unit.

Three Wyncote Academy players scored in double figures Tuesday, and the Lions defeated undermanned Hill Top Prep, 47-44, in a Tri-County League game at Hill Top. John Darden, Mark Drayton and Jon Jonassen each scored in double digits as the Lions won their third game in a row. The Hawks had only five players suited up. "I have to give a lot of credit to Hill Top," said Wyncote coach Steve Feiner. "They have had problems suiting players (due to injuries and academic ineligibility)

If St. Joseph's coach John Griffin had a choice, he would have sent his Hawks out to run with Memphis State's great athletes in the first round of the 40th ECAC Holiday Festival. The Madison Square Garden crowd would have been treated to a wonderful exhibition of '90s basketball. But Griffin had no options. He had to turn back the clock, slow the game down and hope for the best. Not surprisingly, Griffin got a glimpse of his immediate future and it wasn't pretty as Memphis State pulled away in the second half to win, 77-60.

Senior guard Bernard Blunt had 22 points, six rebounds and seven assists to lead six St. Joseph's players in double figures as the Hawks defeated Gmunden, 113-67, yesterday in the sixth game of their seven-game European exhibition tour. Sophomore forward Reggie Townsend had 21 points and eight rebounds and sophomore guard Alex Compton (seven points) added 10 assists. The Hawks (4-2) conclude their trip today when they face the Vienna Basket Flyers, Austria's top-ranked team.

The St. Joseph's Hawks missed lunch yesterday after their flight out of Philadelphia was canceled. Their coach, Phil Martelli, despises an interrupted schedule. He got flustered. "The Hawk will never fly," Martelli moaned. He was wrong. The Hawks arrived here only an hour late, and practiced last night at a local high school gym for tomorrow's NCAA West Regional opener against Pacific. The drama started at Philadelphia International Airport. Instead of taking off at 10:30 a.m., the Hawks had to wait an hour for the next flight, endure an attempted transfer to another airline (which didn't work out)

St. Joseph's played like a team that should have been seeded fourth in the NCAA Tournament. Instead, the Hawks got a No. 9 seed, apparently because the committee thought they did not play enough quality teams. Coach Phil Martelli is determined to change that perception. Thursday, he accepted a spot in the BCA Classic at California-Berkley to start next season (Nov. 16 and 17). The other confirmed teams are Princeton and California. Oklahoma State is more than likely the fourth team.

The already small St. Joseph's basketball team got positively tiny. That didn't matter last night against perimeter-minded Dinamo Novosibirsk, a touring Russian club team that fell to the Hawks, 77-62, at the Fieldhouse. But it might matter in the future. The Hawks played without 6-10 junior center Nemanja Petrovic, a projected starter whose slimmer figure and better post moves remained under wraps. He's suffered with a sore back for more than three weeks, and it finally forced him to the bench.

Rap Curry scored eight points during a 14-4 run early in the second half as St. Joseph's held off California-Santa Barbara, 70-56, last night. Carlin Warley (10 rebounds) scored 15 of his 19 points in the second half to lead the Hawks (9-8). Curry, who also had just four points at halftime, finished with 18 points and 7 assists as St. Joseph's registered back-to-back victories for the first time since the first two games of the season. Will Johnson added 14 points on 6-for-6 shooting.

The Atlanta Hawks still need some help to get the home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs. But with the way they've manhandled the Charlotte Hornets, it might not matter. The Hawks had their highest-scoring game of the season last night, rolling over the visiting Hornets, 121-104, to pull within a game of Charlotte for the fourth seed in the Eastern Conference. Steve Smith scored 27 points, Alan Henderson had 25 and Mookie Blaylock 20 for the Hawks, who completed a sweep of the four-game season series against the team they'll meet in the best-of-five first round.

MY TOP four NCAA Tournament seeds if the selections were today. East: North Carolina South: Oklahoma Midwest: Iowa West: Villanova Each tournament selection committee is different, but if there is one common denominator among members through the years, it would be the value of road wins. After all, teams do not play NCAA Tournament games on regular home courts. If the selections were today, Saint Joseph's almost certainly would be in the field because, after winning Saturday at Rhode Island, 64-55, the Hawks (18-3, 7-1 Atlantic 10)

KINGSTON, R.I. - Isaiah Miles knew he had to stay steady. He'd just been called for a Flagrant 1 foul. The Ryan Center, home of the Rhode Island Rams, was in a pretty good frenzy. Hard for Miles to keep his head? "It's easier, because you know the microscope is on you," said the St. Joseph's senior. "You don't want to do anything dumb and be selfish and jeopardize your team with a loss - because I could have easily gotten into more foul trouble and sat on the bench. Nothing good would have come out of that.

Pierfrancesco Oliva is a 6-foot-8 freshman forward for the St. Joseph's Hawks who grew up in Italy and moved to Hackensack, N.J., to play basketball in the United States. As a senior at Bergen Catholic High School, he scored 15.9 points a game, playing center on defense and point guard on offense and helping the team win its first county championship in 12 years. He is part of the Hawks' regular lineup rotation this season, though no one would classify him as a major contributor to their 17-3 record, since he's averaging fewer than five points and five rebounds a game, adjusting to a higher level of the sport.

WHEN IT GETS to late January and you have been practicing for 100 days and playing for 70, the basketball sometimes will look less than pretty, the end too far away to consider, the grind starting to wear even on teams that have been winning all season. That was Saint Joseph's on Wednesday night at Hagan Arena against a Massachusetts team that had not won since its last trip to Philadelphia on Jan. 3 against La Salle. It was one of those games a team with NCAA Tournament aspirations simply has to win, no matter which way it went down.

THE HOME TEAM had lost 10 of 11. The visitors had won 11 of 12. Naturally, after 12 minutes late Sunday afternoon at Gola Arena, La Salle led Saint Joseph's, 19-8. The Hawks looked somewhere between uninterested and stuck in a giant snow drift. It was, of course, a mirage. La Salle is doing the best it can with what it has, which isn't nearly enough. It was just a question of when the game was going to turn. When it turned, it turned hard. The Hawks' defense suffocated the Explorers; they got out and began to run. The La Salle lead evaporated rapidly.

St. Joseph's won 13 games last season. It didn't matter that nine losses were by six points or fewer, with another coming in overtime. That is what happens to teams that aren't good enough. This time around, the Hawks were picked to finish seventh in the Atlantic Ten, which sounded about right. On Wednesday night at the Palestra, in the second game of the 60th anniversary Big Five doubleheader, they improved to 15-3 with a 75-60 win over 6-9 Penn, which had beaten the Hawks three of the last five years.

HEADING INTO the second game of Wednesday night's Big 5 60th anniversary doubleheader at the Palestra, Mr. Bracketology had Saint Joseph's as one of his first four teams out of the projected NCAA Tournament field. This, for a team picked to finish seventh in the Atlantic 10, with most of the same cast back from a 13-win team that lost a bunch of close ones. And, of course, for whatever that means with seven weeks to go until Selection Sunday. Then again, how many figured the Hawks would even have put themselves into the equation?

A year ago as a young team looking for an offensive identity, St. Joseph's struggled one season after earning an NCAA tournament bid. Hit hard by graduation, the Hawks went 13-18 and had trouble scoring, averaging 61.7 points. The Hawks lost just one starter from last season, point guard Chris Wilson. But, armed with virtually the same cast, the results have been strikingly different. St. Joseph's has already surpassed last season's win total. The Hawks take a 14-3 record into Wednesday's second game of a Palestra doubleheader against Penn.
