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 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.

ATLANTA - Some might chalk up the 76ers' loss on Wednesday as a last-place team's falling to one of the hottest squads in the NBA. But it was more a case of struggling behind the arc and at the foul line. Still, you have to give the Sixers this much: They kept things respectable through three quarters despite their shortcomings. The Atlanta Hawks eventually prevailed, 95-79, at Philips Arena. The loss denied the Sixers (2-19) an opportunity to win back-to-back games for the first time this season.

It appears that Tony Wroten will be sidelined longer than expected. The 76ers guard was looking forward to returning from a right-knee sprain Wednesday night against the Atlanta Hawks. However, Wroten was listed as doubtful Tuesday for the matchup at the Phillips Arena. This comes one day after the 6-foot-6, 205-pounder said he felt close to 100 percent. "We don't want to push it," Sixers coach Brett Brown said. "So I expect him to not be available against Atlanta. " Wroten suffered the knee injury Nov. 26 against Brooklyn.

IT WAS the Baltimore Jesuits against the Philadelphia Jesuits. And St. Ignatius might have been wondering exactly why all those Jesuit colleges have loved their basketball for so long. Loyola and Saint Joseph's had been playing for nearly 12 minutes at Hagan Arena. The Hawks had seven points. SJU coach Phil Martelli had a lot to say between Saturday afternoon, when his team got hammered at Villanova, and when the ball went up last night. "I wasn't really nice," he said. "I wasn't a real grandfather type to them on Sunday or Monday.

VILLANOVA is playing at a top-10 level again. The rest of the Big 5 is rebuilding and/or trying to discover exactly how to maximize the strengths of their players while covering up their weaknesses. So, it was no shock when the Wildcats, playing at home Saturday, jumped Saint Joseph's at the start and never looked back, winning 74-46. It was 17-2 after 6 minutes. Weeks before the season began, Hawks coach Phil Martelli said his team's biggest issue was shooting. He knew his team.

THE MOMENT the driving layup by Temple's Will Cummings that would have forced overtime went up, Isaiah Miles said he knew what was going to happen. "He's a great freaky athlete," is how Miles described his Saint Joseph's teammate, fellow forward DeAndre Bembry. "I saw him cutting across [the lane] and you could tell he had it. "He just took off. " Bembry, a 6-6 sophomore, figures to win his share of games for the Hawks with his offense. But last night at Hagan Arena, in a game in which he shot 3-for-15, he saved one at the other end by blocking the ball hard off the backboard.

St. Joseph's had a 12-point cushion at halftime, but the Hawks had to stave off a furious Temple rally to earn a 58-56 victory over the Owls on Wednesday night in a Big Five matchup at Hagan Arena.

NEW YORK - Saint Joseph's coach Phil Martelli's team definitely deserves a break before the city rivalry matchups next week after playing six games in 14 days. But now the Hawks have to sit wondering how they can bounce back mentally after another bad loss, 62-59, to Western Kentucky yesterday to finish the NIT Tip-Off at Madison Square Garden. Temple and No. 12 Villanova will be more formidable opponents for Saint Joseph's (3-3) in the always-entertaining Big 5 games Wednesday and Saturday.

JAMES DEMERY sure picked a good time to hit his first collegiate three-pointer. Trailing by three with the clock winding down, Demery hit a shot from just in front of the Saint Joseph's bench to tie the score with less than 4 seconds left in regulation. The freshman from Williamston, N.C., says he hit three game-winners in high school. "I don't know about that," laughed teammate DeAndre Bembry, from Charlotte. "He didn't hit any against me. " The one last night didn't win it, but it did force overtime and helped Saint Joseph's eventually slip past gritty LIU Brooklyn, 74-70.

DeAndre' Bembry and defense helped St. Joseph's bounce back from its worst loss ever. Bembry, a sophomore who was a preseason first-team all-Atlantic 10 selection, regained the form he displayed as a freshman by scoring 22 points to lead the Hawks to a 68-60 victory over Vermont on Saturday night at Hagan Arena. St. Joe's (2-2) forced 18 turnovers on 13 steals and also got strong games from Isaiah Miles and Aaron Brown, who had 15 and 13 points, respectively. But it was the play of Bembry that helped the Hawks shake off any lingering effects from Wednesday's 52-point rout at No. 13 Gonzaga.

With a young team, very little is expected to come easily for St. Joseph's. After the Hawks lost by a point in their opener Friday to visiting Fairleigh Dickinson, they played another nail-biter Monday night, this time escaping with a 52-49 win over Drexel at the Daskalakis Athletic Center. The outcome wasn't decided until Drexel's Damion Lee missed a last-second three-pointer. "I knew I was pretty far out and once it left my hand I thought it was good," said Lee, who scored a game-high 23 points and looked strong after suffering a season-ending knee injury in the fifth game last year.
