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.

LAST WEEK, when the final NBA pick was sent in around midnight at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn and former Saint Joseph's forward Ronald Roberts Jr.'s name wasn't called, he didn't panic. He called his agents from Pensack Sports and decided the best opportunity for his career was to play in two summer leagues, one in Las Vegas with the Miami Heat and one with the Sixers, who practice less than a mile from the St. Joe's campus at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine.

PROFESSOR STEPHEN Hawking, one of the world's top physicists, is a huge soccer fan. So, when officials at the online-betting site Paddy Power wanted to know how England could enhance its chances of winning the World Cup, they turned to the self-deprecating Hawking for answers. He didn't disappoint. "I always saw Paddy Power as slightly anti-intellectual but by inviting me to be a pundit, they have proved me wrong," Hawking wrote. "They recognized that as a theoretical physicist I'm marginally more qualified to make predictions than Paul the Octopus.

THE SAINT Joseph's baseball team started its last series of the regular season against Massachusetts last Thursday afternoon. In the bottom of the third inning, Chris Hueth connected with a pitch and sent it way over the fence and across Latchs Lane, which rests beyond the leftfield fence. It was cited as the longest home run ever hit at Smithson Field. Hueth's blast could serve as a metaphor for the Hawks' 2014 campaign. They have hit it out of the park in a way never seen on City Avenue.

Nearly 13,000 viewers have tuned in since St. Joseph's University trained a webcam in April on a pair of hawks nesting on campus. This week, they got a bonus: chicks. At least two fuzzy little heads have been spotted in the nest atop a towering pine, next to the pedestrian bridge that arches over City Avenue into Philadelphia. "The first chick hatched earlier this week (probably Monday) and we think the second hatched yesterday," biology Professor Michael McCann said in an e-mail Thursday.

WITH A ROUSING fourth quarter of lacrosse almost undoubtedly in the offing, St. Joseph's Prep and La Salle High were halted by lightning delays that led to the game's postponement in a 5-5 tie. The fourth quarter will be finished today at 3 p.m. at La Salle and will determine first place in Catholic League play. Brief pregame precipitation gave way to brilliant sunshine at the outset, which spawned a rainbow behind the field at Plymouth-Whitemarsh. The game was free from rain throughout until ominous clouds rolled in. The Explorers assumed a modicum of control after freshman Christopher Hladczuk scored the game's first goal with 2:46 left in the first quarter.

The hardest part of St. Joseph's Hawks basketball practices under Jack Ramsay? Don DiJulia said it was being selected to play one-on-one. With Ramsay. "If you won - 'OK, we're playing again,' " said DiJulia, former Ramsay player, longtime St. Joe's athletic director. "If you won again - 'OK, we're playing again.' " Jack Ramsay, who died Monday at age 89, was nearing 40 when DiJulia joined his team. Not that age ever meant anything with Ramsay. This man goes down as Philadelphia's greatest contribution to basketball coaching, or maybe the coaching of any sport.

St. Joseph's University truly is the home of the Hawks. They've got the birds to prove it. Two red-tailed hawks have nested in a towering pine on the lawn of McShain Hall, a freshman residence next to the pedestrian bridge that arches over City Avenue into Philadelphia. The university community is enthralled with the birds, monitoring them via a "Hawkcam" set up April 2 on the fifth floor of McShain. There are signs that chicks are on the way. "Everybody's got their fingers crossed," Michael McCann, biology professor and associate dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, said Thursday.
