The Daily News is spending the NCAA Tournament with the St. Joseph's Hawks for a behind-the-scenes look at their experience. We'll be right with them as long as the Hawks are in the tournament. St. Joe's plays defending national champion Kentucky Thursday in the Sweet 16 in San Jose, Calif. Monday was meetings, classes and practice. Spring break was over and school remains part of the obligation. The stakes have increased, but the coaches and players remained the same. The opponent is top of the line, but the game is still 40 minutes, the rims 10 feet high.

It was not until little more than three minutes remained in yesterday's St. Joseph's-Fordham game that Matt Brady really started to look like a college basketball head coach. It was then that he peeled off his sports jacket, wiped the sweat from his brow, and had the flushed appearance of someone with a tax collector at his door. With Phil Martelli unable to make the trip because of the flu, Brady, who is in his ninth season as an assistant coach at St. Joe's, made his first start as the man running the show from the sideline.

The lifelong criminal career of 40-year-old Charles Campbell appears to be over. Common Pleas Judge John W. Herron has seen to that. The judge sentenced Campbell, of Bouvier Street near Westmoreland, to 50 to 100 years in prison for trying to murder a Korean family inside their grocery store in 1990 and for two robberies of a Germantown Avenue bar in 1991. Assistant District Attorney Cynthia Martelli said Campbell shot and wounded the grocery store owner and his wife, pistol-whipped their son, and shot at their daughter, but missed.

A mother who watched her small son being tortured for five years, without telling anyone, will spend the next 15 to 36 years in prison. That's the sentence Common Pleas Judge James D. McCrudden imposed yesterday on Judith Gladney, 29, formerly of Lindenwood Street near Kingsessing Avenue. Rodney Gladney was 10 when he died in a suspicious fire at the home in January 1985. Also killed in the blaze was the boy's brother, Ishmail, 4. Assistant District Attorney Cynthia Martelli said before Rodney's death he suffered from what experts called one of the worst child abuse cases they had ever seen.

It was supposed to be just an ordinary bath for her 2-year-old foster daughter, claimed Janice Johnson. And plunging little Rashanna Thompson into scalding water, Johnson told a Common Pleas judge yesterday, "was just carelessness. " The March 30, 1988, bath left the toddler forever scarred, never to be regarded by her peers "as anything but a freak," said Assistant District Attorney Cynthia Martelli. It also left foster mother Johnson, 26, in tears yesterday and sentenced by Common Pleas Judge Marvin Halbert to 7 1/2 to 15 years in jail.

No coach cherishes the Palestra more than St. Joseph's Phil Martelli. After all, Martelli's passion for basketball was spawned during cold winter nights when his father would take him to the storied old building to watch City Series games. Martelli has repeatedly said that the Hawks' Big Five home games will be played at the Palestra as long as he's the coach. Nonetheless, there's no place like home, so Martelli and his team are looking forward to playing next season at their expanded and renovated Alumni Memorial Fieldhouse, which will be called Michael J. Hagan '85 Arena.

Olympic Conference commissioner Arnold Webster said yesterday that he had not yet received the written protest from Cherry Hill West High concerning Tuesday's baseball game against Edgewood. Webster, the superintendent of schools in Camden, said he would get the information "first thing in the morning" from the former Olympic commissioner, the Rev. Joseph Martelli, principal of Gloucester Catholic. West protested Tuesday's 6-5 loss to Edgewood. The game was a partial replay ordered by the league after Edgewood protested a game played May 3. In the original game, a ruling by an umpire prevented Edgewood coach Bob Lee from talking to his pitcher.

No one wanted to make Phil Martelli's 100th victory as St. Joseph's basketball coach come easily. No one. Not the airline that turned a 48-minute Philadelphia-to-Buffalo flight on Friday into a frustrating, 11-hour odyssey that had Martelli's stomach in knots. Not the more than 6,000 fired-up St. Bonaventure fans, the most volatile in the Atlantic Ten Conference, who jammed into the Reilly Center yesterday. Not the officials, who whistled St. Joe's for a remarkable five offensive fouls in the first 7 1/2 minutes.

BUFFALO, N.Y. - Now that they've finally reached the NCAA Tournament for the first time in their careers, Langston Galloway, Halil Kanacevic and Ronald Roberts Jr., are in no rush to head back home. Saint Joseph's trio of senior starters, who lead the 10th-seeded Hawks (24-9) into tonight's second-round game against seventh-seeded Connecticut (26-8), are hoping to add a March Madness upset to their résumés before leaving Buffalo. They practiced yesterday at nearby Canisius College - the same locale SJU used in March 2004 - and then went through a 40-minute shootaround on the court of the First Niagara Center.

Phil Martelli has won more basketball games at St. Joseph's than any other coach. On Thursday, St. Joe's demonstrated that it wants him to continue his winning ways there, signing him a multiyear contract extension. Terms of the deal were not released. "My successes are directly related to the quality of people who have played for me. To each of them, I am forever grateful," Martelli said. "Our players, staff, and administrators are wonderful people who care for the program and the university.

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.

BUFFALO - Kevin Ollie, coach of the Connecticut Huskies, played three brief stints with the 76ers during a 13-year NBA career in which all of his stints around the league were relatively brief. There were an awful lot of them, though. He played with 11 franchises, and it seemed there was always a place that wanted him for his influence in the locker room and on the court. "Class. Class personified," said St. Joseph's coach Phil Martelli, whose Hawks meet up with Ollie's UConn team Thursday in the NCAA opener for both schools.

PHIL MARTELLI had conducted interviews with three different national radio shows as of late yesterday afternoon. During each one, the Saint Joseph's coach said, the topic of conversation shifted to his grandson. Philip Stephen Martelli, the now-famous 4-year-old, has become somewhat of an Internet sensation since Sunday's Atlantic 10 championship game, during which CBS highlighted him mimicking his grandfather's every move from behind the bench. Since then, ABC's "Good Morning America" and NBC's "Today Show" replayed the clip, and at least two news stations had already been out to the Martellis' home to interview Philip Stephen, the longtime Hawks coach said.

'THERE WAS a stretch of time after Jameer that I didn't like myself," Phil Martelli was saying in his office late yesterday afternoon. An endorphin-absorbed Sunday that had spilled into a foodless evening and then a sleepless night had morphed the coach into the kind of truth-spilling interviewee that detectives only dream about. He was happy one moment, pensive the next, even a bit sad after that. He was exhausted mostly, but not in the way he has spent too much of the time between the time Jameer Nelson finished and now being exhausted.

CBS asked for permission first. Staffers had seen Phil Martelli's grandson, Philip, right behind the St. Joseph's bench during the Atlantic 10 tournament, acting like . . . Phil Martelli. Would it be OK to make him part of the telecast? They should have asked: Do you mind if your 4-year-old grandson steals the show, even as the Hawks win the A-10 title for the first time since 1997? If you haven't seen Philip Martelli in action, you don't go online much, since the video went fairly viral.

NEW YORK - You've seen Phil Martelli get angry, edgy, streetwise, sarcastic, proud. You've seen him happy. This was different. As soon as his St. Joseph's Hawks won the Atlantic 10 tournament on Sunday, Martelli's chin started to quiver. He looked behind his team's bench, where his wife had already broken down in tears. "I was trying to hold off," Martelli said later. "When I saw her and how emotional she was, I broke. " Did Judy Martelli often get full-on emotional like that after the big ones?

ANDREW WIGGINS, Jabari Parker, Julius Randle and basically the rest of Kentucky's rotation. Freshman fever has swept through college basketball. Depending on your point of view, it has either been a refreshing tropical breeze or akin to living downwind of a landfill. Creighton's Doug McDermott is an anomaly. He is one of the most prolific scorers in recent history and he stayed for all four seasons of his college career. How's this for a great stat? McDermott led the nation with 284 made field goals last year; 26 of them were lefthanded.

St. Joseph's coach Phil Martelli recently ran into a longtime acquaintance, a businessman. The man asked, "How's everything going?" For a moment, Martelli said, he thought about giving an honest assessment, realizing this guy didn't know any details of what Martelli had been hit with lately. Instead, the Hawks coach left it at, "Everything's great. " The reality? "I feel like I've been invited by God to play cards, but he's only given me three cards," Martelli said, sitting in his office on Hawk Hill.
