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.

COLIN CUNNINGHAM isn't much of a golfer. And even though he looks the part at 6-2 and 210 pounds, he's not a football player, either. He is however, St. Joseph's Prep's No. 1 pitcher, and that role is almost as unfamiliar as the perfect drive off the tee or putting on a helmet and pads. However, the Hawks' newest top gun came through yesterday, helping them hold off a late-charging Father Judge, 10-6, at Krajewski Family Field at Ramp Playground. "Since I'm pretty young as a junior, I've never really been that confident on the mound before," Cunningham said, his reddish brown hair peeking from behind his cap. "But, I just talked to my coach [Joe Falcone]

ATLANTA - It all started so well. On the heels of their first win after 26 consecutive losses, the 76ers began last night's game against the Atlanta Hawks as if a two-game winning streak was on the verge. They passed the ball as well as they had in quite some time, made open shots and forced the Hawks into missing many contested three-pointers. But as has happened so often this season, the drought came, and this one at the most inopportune time as the Sixers were able to make just one basket in the final 3 minutes and 8 seconds and fell to the Hawks, 103-95.

ATLANTA - Two nights after ending their 26-game losing streak, the 76ers may have jump-started another one. They suffered a 103-95 loss to the Atlanta Hawks on Monday at Philips Arena. They had tied for the longest losing streak in major sports history, and now the Sixers (16-58) must beat the Charlotte Bobcats on Wednesday at the Wells Fargo Center to avoid their 11th losing streak of the season. A former Sixer denied them an opportunity to follow up on Saturday's 123-98 victory over Detroit.

SENIOR ERIN SHIELDS scored 18 points on Sunday to power Saint Joseph's to its first NCAA Tournament win since 2000. While the win was sweet, there was something staring the Hawks in the face as they moved on to the second round - a matchup with the University of Connecticut tonight in Storrs, Conn. "We got back to the hotel [Sunday] night and we were happy about the win but then you wake up this morning and you move on," Shields said.

IN A RECENT CHAPTER of Philadelphia's esteemed Book of Basketball, a deep and dangerous team put together a wonderful season that ended against an opponent that was just a little bit better. The Philly team was stacked with undergraduate talent; in fact, it lost only one significant player to graduation. So the team expected - and was expected - to have another outstanding season; but that did not happen for La Salle. Not far away, a senior-laden team made a late-season run and finally performed to its capacity.

The hawk that captivated area bird lovers by winning the heart of a red-tailed female and moving into her nest on a ledge of the Franklin Institute has apparently died. Known as "T2" by the hawk fans who monitored its movements via the Franklin Institute Hawk Nest camera, the male hawk, or tiercel, was last seen last Sunday, according to Della Micah, who runs a "Hawkwatch" blog dedicated to the birds. Then, early last week, Amtrak workers found the body of a hawk on some train tracks near 30th Street Station.

IN PHILADELPHIA, we have been blessed with a history of great college basketball and great college basketball coaches. Think about it: We've had true legends like Harry Litwack, John Chaney, Jack Kraft and Rollie Massimino and future NBA greats like Dr. Jack Ramsay and Chuck Daly. Our current crop of coaches is keeping up the tradition. In fact, for Jay Wright and Phil Martelli, the two local coaches whose teams reached the NCAA Tournament this year, this season could be said to be the best coaching jobs of their illustrious careers.
