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.

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.

By his own admission, St. Joseph's Prep junior Daniel Fisher can't play a lick of basketball. He is, however, familiar with a certain facet of pickup ball, which on Wednesday he astutely pointed out actually applies to his position as faceoff man for the Hawks' lacrosse team. "I never realized how important it was," Fisher said after the Hawks bested host Archbishop Ryan, 14-6. "You're basically playing make-it-take-it if you have a faceoff guy who can keep winning. " Fisher, who will play lacrosse at Villanova, won all six of the faceoffs he saw in limited first-half action.

SPOKANE, Wash. - There were just 17 teams left in the NCAA Tournament as Saint Joseph's and Oregon played out the second half of their second-round game Sunday night at the Spokane Arena. The winner was going to get a West Regional date with Duke on Thursday in Anaheim. It was an opportunity. It looked like a lost cause for the longest time for the Hawks. Nothing really was going right or according to plan. What you have to do then is stay in the moment until the moment becomes yours.

SPOKANE, Wash. - While the St. Joseph's team and head coach Phil Martelli were on the bus home from Brooklyn last Sunday night after winning the Atlantic Ten championship, the Hawks assistants were getting assigned opponents to scout. Dave Duda was given Cincinnati, Mark Bass took Oregon. Bass and Geoff Arnold were driving home separately when Arnold texted Martelli and the coach told him to forget the team Oregon would be playing in the 1-16 game Friday. "Why don't you just help Mark," was the text from Martelli.

SPOKANE, Wash. - Isaiah Miles saw the replays that kept running on the big video screens inside Spokane Arena, as game officials looked at the same sequence on a monitor at the scorer's table. His thought: Let's start the celebration. "I knew . . . His fingertips were still on it," the St. Joseph's Hawks senior said later. His own catch-and-shoot three-pointer, the one Miles will look back to his whole life, was going to stand up as a game-winner over Cincinnati, 78-76, for the first St. Joe's NCAA victory in a dozen years.

St. Joseph's keys The Hawks need to press their advantage by spreading the floor, forcing Cincinnati's post defenders away from the basket, and then hitting from the outside. But St. Joe's doesn't depend on the outside shot. Look for all of the Hawks to also be driving to the hoop. A bigger key is usually at the other end, where an opponent heating up from the outside gives the Hawks problems. St. Joe's isn't afraid to use some zone, but too much of it can be dangerous since sometimes it can allow opponents to get in a rhythm.

SPOKANE, Wash. - The Spokane Arena overlooks what, decades ago, the locals termed the "fast water" of Spokane Falls, formed 15,000 or so years ago when Glacial Lake Missoula flowed down into the valley and slowly began to cut through the rocks. These days, suspension bridges overlook the majesty of the raging waters, the largest in-city waterfall in America. If there is one thing Saint Joseph's would like to do in Friday night's NCAA game against glacial Cincinnati, it is play fast, like that water headed over the falls, play in the open court, play as few times as possible against the Bearcats' set defense.

SPOKANE, Wash. - The Saint Joseph's basketball team arrived midafternoon Wednesday in this town so far east in the state that the Idaho border is just 20 miles away. The Hawks would like to stay a while. Truth be told, they would like to stay until, say Monday, when they would like to catch another flight down the coast to Anaheim, Calif., the site of next week's West Regional. That, of course, would require them to win two NCAA games at Spokane Veterans Memorial Arena, first late Friday night against Cincinnati and then almost certainly against Pac-12 champion Oregon Sunday.

Before the season, St. Joseph's announced it was extending Phil Martelli's contract. Not a surprising bit of news. The interesting part: The school declined to say for how long. Athletic director Don DiJulia still won't say for how long. It could have been for a day or a decade. (Guessing about three years seems smarter than a day or a decade.) The point is that St. Joe's believed it needed to extend Martelli and announce it. That's partly a smart way to handle business, to let recruits relax about whether the coach recruiting them also would be coaching them.

WHATEVER HAPPENS in the hours just before the NCAA selections are made often gets lost in the national obsession that is our rush to decipher the brackets. What Saint Joseph's did over the weekend in Brooklyn was a reminder of how wonderful basketball can be when played in perfect harmony and could very well be instructive on how the Hawks might play this Friday night in Spokane, Wash., against Cincinnati. Sunday's Atlantic 10 championship game win over VCU was about as aesthetically pleasing a performance as you are likely to see. When St. Joe's coach Phil Martelli was asked if he could remember any of his teams playing better, he first consulted with director of basketball operations Rob Sullivan and said that the only thing that came close was his 2003-04 team's 114-63 win at St. Bonaventure.
