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.

BROOKLYN - A year ago at Atlantic 10 Media Day, La Salle coach John Giannini was everybody's favorite interview, still illuminated in the glow that was the Explorers' run to the NCAA's Sweet 16 with three tournament wins, looking forward to what seemed like another NCAA berth. Saint Joseph's Phil Martelli was still a great interview, but his team was picked nowhere in particular after a 2012-13 season that seemed filled with promise but ended ingloriously. The Hawks were not taken particularly seriously last October.

THE GOLDEN hardwoods of Hagan Arena are back in heavy use, with college basketball practice underway. Before the official start of hoops, Saint Joseph's sophomore DeAndre' Bembry put in his time, getting ready for the season. One golden day, he sat in a plastic chair facing the right sideline, his massive Afro conspicuous while he practiced his dribble. Right dribble, behind his legs, left dribble and back; his hair never moved, his smile never faltered. The confidence of the wiry wing who took the Atlantic 10 by storm last season was renewed.

AFTER GRADUATING three starters, including two crucial frontcourt players in Ronald Roberts and Halil Kanacevic, Saint Joseph's senior forward Papa Ndao was supposed to take on a bigger role in the 2014-15 season. That won't happen, however. Ndao will sit out the season because of unspecified medical reasons, the school announced yesterday in a news release. "Papa's well-being is our primary concern," coach Phil Martelli said in the release. "While I am disappointed that Papa won't be with us physically, I expect him to play a significant role as a team leader.

For Spencer Patton, every second that ticked off the scoreboard clock at Lower Bartley Field felt like a minute. His La Salle soccer team was up a goal in a taut game against visiting St. Joseph's Prep, and the final few minutes dragged on and on for the sophomore tricaptain. Every cleared ball didn't seem to go far enough, and every free kick for the Hawks looked like a dangerous opportunity. But then the whistle finally blew Tuesday afternoon, and the Explorers' 2-1, come-from-behind win was complete, propelled by two goals in a four-minute span of the Catholic League game.

DANNY FERRY is the latest sorry individual associated with the NBA. The Hawks' general manager has apologized for racist remarks he made about Heat forward Luol Deng during a conference call with the team's ownership group in June. Yesterday, the Hawks announced they had disciplined Ferry, but will allow him to keep his job. The team didn't disclose what type of discipline it has imposed. On June 12, Michael Gearon sent a letter to fellow Hawks co-owner Bruce Levenson. In it, he wrote that Ferry said Deng - who was then a free agent - "has a little African in him. Not in a bad way, but he's like a guy who would have a nice store out front and sell you counterfeit stuff out of the back.

ATLANTA HAWKS co-owner Bruce Levenson is a former journalist who earned a law degree from American University. But sometimes, smart guys do dumb things. Yesterday, Levenson announced he is selling controlling interest in the team because of a racist email he wrote 2 years ago. In July, Levenson informed the league of an email he sent to the Hawks' other co-owners and general manager Danny Ferry. In the email, Levenson addressed reasons the team's season-ticket base was so small.

St. Joseph's Prep was looking to live up to its lofty national football ranking against fellow powerhouse Don Bosco Prep (N.J.) in a Saturday night showdown at Plymouth Whitemarsh. Don Bosco spoiled that plan in emphatic fashion, using a potent one-two offensive punch and a swarming defense to notch a 35-7 nonleague victory in a game stopped because of lightning with 2 minutes, 33 seconds remaining in the second quarter. After a delay of about 55 minutes, with lightning continuing to strike in Plymouth Meeting, the referees and respective coaches agreed to call it a night.

As a North Jersey native and former coach at Paramus Catholic, St. Joseph's Prep boss Gabe Infante knows all about the mystique surrounding perennial power Don Bosco Prep. Infante and the Hawks experienced it firsthand last season when they hit the road, fell way behind early, and bowed to the Ironmen, 42-0, in Bergen County. "They've got a recipe for success that's worked a long, long time," said Infante, whose squad kicked off the 2014 campaign with a 28-27 win over Chicago's Mount Carmel.

LAST YEAR, St. Joseph's Prep star forward Chris Clover planned to announce himself as one of the city's top talents. Then a junior, all Clover did was average 22 points per game in Catholic League play and earn first-team honors from league coaches and the Daily News All-City squad. Now, he can add a commitment to play college basketball at Saint Joseph's, a decision he made yesterday at SJU before the Prep played at the university's team camp. However, don't for a second think that Clover believes his announcement is complete.
