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)

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.

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 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.

St. Joseph's coach Phil Martelli called a timeout with 1 minute, 46 seconds remaining in a six-point game. His Hawks had let Fordham back within striking distance after leading by as many as 13 points. There was no doubt where St. Joseph's was going to go to ensure a victory. Chris Wilson drained a three-point shot from the right wing to push the game out of reach, giving the Hawks their first Atlantic Ten win of the season, 66-55, Wednesday night at Hagan Arena. St. Joseph's finished the game on a 14-6 run. "It was a great read," Martelli said of Wilson's play.

In a common theme for the 76ers, they faced a shorthanded squad Tuesday night. This time, it was the Atlanta Hawks' turn to rest some of their normal starters. All-star power forward Paul Millsap and small forward DeMarre Carroll were inactive. Standout point guard Jeff Teague was dressed but never left the bench. And they might have made a big difference, as Teague and Millsap are the team's leading scorers. But unlike their previous two matchups against the Brooklyn Nets and Indiana Pacers, the Sixers were unable to take advantage of an undermanned squad.

ATLANTA HAWKS coach Bud Budenholzer could only roll his eyes and shrug his shoulders when he heard the question yet again about how his team tries to emulate the system of the San Antonio Spurs. It's a fair, and obvious question, as the Hawks have elevated themselves to Eastern Conference elite status and have done it with the type of play Budenholzer witnessed as an assistant for 17 years under Gregg Popovich - good ball movement, unselfish play and a desire to make good things great.

IN THE MIDST of a Jan. 7 game against the Memphis Grizzlies, Atlanta Hawks sharpshooter Kyle Korver caught a pass in front of his team's bench with no defender within 10 feet. Korver's teammates rose, screamed and danced before the ball even left his hands. They know it's foolish to let Korver get a shot up at all, let alone unguarded. Swish. The Hawks erupted as if he just posterized one of the Grizzlies with a dunk. It's just been that sort of season for Korver and the Hawks, who have won 23 of their last 25 games after beating the Sixers, 105-87, last night and sit atop the Eastern Conference standings at 30-8.

Brett Brown easily notices the change in his team's attitude when it picks up a win here and there, but the coach does not lose sight of reality. After winning two games in a row for just the second time this season and three of their last four games, the 76ers (7-29) have a tough week ahead against the best that the Eastern Conference has to offer. It begins with a home game Tuesday against Atlanta (29-8), owner of the best record in the Eastern Conference. Then the Sixers will travel to Atlantic Division leader Toronto (25-11)

If only St. Joseph's could find the consistency that coach Phil Martelli is looking for, then things might start to settle down for his young team. On Saturday, the Hawks had an opportunity to establish something along those lines against a good George Washington team, one that already had beaten a ranked Wichita State team. Instead, the Hawks fell behind early, then rallied furiously only to fall short, 64-60, in the Atlantic Ten Conference opener for both teams at Hagan Arena. Beaten in just about every aspect of the game for the first 32 minutes, St. Joseph's (6-6)

DENVER - Facing frigid temperatures and a 9-day layoff, the Saint Joseph's Hawks lost their focus late last night against the Denver Pioneers, falling 77-73 in overtime. "To me, it's a fruitless trip to come all this way only to give a game away like that," Saint Joseph's head coach Phil Martelli said. "That's unacceptable. " The Hawks saw their seven-point halftime lead evaporate as the team had no answer for the Pioneers' press to begin the second half. Yet after going down 45-43 with just over 13 minutes remaining, the Hawks answered with a clutch, 11-0 run that included two big threes from DeAndre Bembry and Isaiah Miles.

LUMBERTON - The large tree stump at Main and Landing Streets had bothered Tommy Shover since he took down the rest of the diseased red oak about five years ago. What could he do with it? As general foreman of Lumberton's public works department, he could saw it off to the ground - or he could ask his brother Guy to turn it into a work of art. And that's what happened Sunday while a small crowd watched mesmerized. Motorists opened their windows to offer praise every time the corner traffic light turned red. Over about 10 hours, the eyesore became a graceful bird in flight, the inner wood grain beautifully mimicking the feathers of the wings.

POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. - With the Christmas holidays just ahead, the St. Joseph's basketball team picked up what coach Phil Martelli called an important victory. "I'm pleased for the players and the coaches because this is the hardest game of the year," Martelli said after the Hawks dispatched Marist, 75-58, Saturday night at the McCann Arena. "You come off this 10- or 11-day break because of exams. They're kids, they want to get home. "We really concentrated on starting strong. " The Hawks turned a three-point lead into a 19-point advantage thanks to a 19-3 run that knocked the host Red Foxes on their heels.
