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.

At halftime of the Group 1 state championship, the Haddon Township girls' basketball team trailed New Providence by 13 points. The Hawks had scored just seven points. The only really notable aspect of their performance was the heavy minutes played by guard Alayxiah Carr, who could barely walk from one end of the court to the other because of a knee injury. It's probably an understatement to say that few expected much action in the second half. But by the end of the next period, the game was tied.

FROM HEAD to toe, everything about DeAndre' Bembry indicates he is more style than substance. His audacious Afro transfixes everyone who sees him, on City Avenue or in a Saint Joseph's classroom or in Hagen Arena. Nearly as wide as his shoulders and cropped over his ears, it is a mushroom cloud of basketball funk, an explosion of retro chic. On his chin he grows a wispy goatee more than 2 inches long. It has never been shaved. Glance down and witness psychedelic socks. The inevitable tattoos, the predictable piercings - they all would represent his further, deep need for notice; his well of insecurity; his ache for individuality.

PHIL MARTELLI sits at midcourt at Hagan Arena after Monday's practice, hunching forward in his chair while eating a bag of pretzels. Practice wrapped up moments ago, and it had its share of teaching moments, but he's not discouraged. Just a year ago this Sunday, his Saint Joseph's team was cutting down the nets at Brooklyn's Barclays Center. The Hawks were Atlantic 10 champions after entering the conference tournament as the fourth seed. They went on to dance with the best of the best in March Madness, giving eventual champion Connecticut all it could handle in a first-round overtime loss.

They nested in a towering pine at St. Joseph's University and so endeared themselves to the campus that they were named "Crimson and Gray," after the school colors. The red-tailed hawks that made St. Joe's their home last spring and drew 13,000 viewers to a university webcam trained on their nest gain fame anew in a just-released 55-page book. Profits from the book, full of photos of Crimson and Gray and their babies, Iggy and Swoop, will be used to improve the habitat for birds on campus, said Michael McCann, a biology professor and associate dean of the College of Arts and Sciences.

KINGSTON, R.I. - St. Joseph's coach Phil Martelli was succinct when summing up his thoughts before the Atlantic 10 Conference tournament. "I hope that I get to see a couple of days' worth," Martelli said Saturday after Rhode Island beat the Hawks, 78-68, in the regular-season finale at the Ryan Center. "I'm not going to handicap it. I just told my team I'm not going to blow smoke about, 'Let's win four games in four days.' "We could have to play Wednesday. The first they heard about that is now. We're just going up there to try to win one game and see what happens.

It was another solid opportunity for the 76ers to snap a losing streak. The Atlanta Hawks came to town minus three starters in Kyle Korver, Paul Millsap, and DeMarre Carroll. Those three players combine to average 41.1 points for the NBA's top team. The Sixers took advantage, winning by 92-84 Saturday night at the Wells Fargo Center. The victory improved the Sixers to 14-49 and snapped their four-game losing streak. Meanwhile, the Hawks (49-13) lost for the first time in seven games.

AMHERST, Mass. - The last time Phil Martelli's St. Joseph's Hawks won a road game, they hadn't even unwrapped their Christmas presents. Wednesday night, DeAndre' Bembry gave the Hawks a career-high scoring performance and a big Atlantic Ten win over Massachusetts. Bembry had a career-best 33 points to go with 14 rebounds and four assists as the Hawks (12-15, 6-9 A-10) ended a nine-game road losing streak, and a three-game skid overall, with an 82-71 win over UMass (16-12, 9-6)

IF VILLANOVA continues to shoot threes like it has during the Big East season, the Wildcats are going to be a very, very tough out in the NCAA Tournament. The No. 6 Wildcats hit Marquette with 11-for-21 shooting from the arc Saturday and won comfortably in Milwaukee, 87-76. 'Nova (25-2, 12-2 Big East) has complete control of the conference race heading into the final 2 weeks of the regular season. Marquette (11-15, 3-11) was undermanned with just six scholarship players, but good offense is good offense.

Pretty much the only statistical category in which DeAndre' Bembry does not lead St. Joseph's was the one the Hawks needed him to excel in Saturday night. Bembry missed the front end of a potential game-tying one-and-one twice in the final 10 seconds of regulation and the Hawks went on to fall in overtime, 70-60, to St. Bonaventure at Hagan Arena. St. Bonaventure (14-11, 7-7 Atlantic Ten) outscored the Hawks, 18-8, in the extra session, a margin made closer by a couple of late three-pointers from the Hawks.
