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 didn't mind having some fun at his own expense during Monday night's Big Five awards dinner at the Palestra after he was called to the podium to accept the trophy as Big Five coach of the year. "I'm not taking it home because I'm tired of being mistaken for Jay Wright," the St. Joseph's coach said of the head coach at Villanova, one week removed from winning the national championship. "This has got to be Jay Wright's. The guy won the national championship. It makes me scratch my head.

THE BASKETBALL worlds of 76ers coach Brett Brown and Villanova's Jay Wright couldn't be further apart. Brown is guiding a team that might tie the NBA mark for worst record in an 82-game season. If his club loses its remaining seven games, it would tie the futility mark of 9-73 set by the 1972-73 Sixers. Brown's team is riding a 10-game losing streak, part of a 23-game stretch in which it has lost 22. Wright, of course, is the toast of the town as he and his Villanova Wildcats left for Houston on Wednesday afternoon for their national semifinal game against Oklahoma on Saturday and a possible trip to the championship game on Monday against the winner of North Carolina-Syracuse.

St Joseph's star DeAndre' Bembry and coach Phil Martelli were named the Big Five player and coach of the year, while Hawks senior Isaiah Miles was named the most improved player. They will be honored with other men's and women's award winners at the Big Five banquet at the Palestra on April 11. Bembry and Miles were also named to the all-Big Five first team along with Villanova's Josh Hart and Ryan Arcidiacono and Temple's Quenton DeCosey. The second team includes two more Wildcats, Daniel Ochefu and Kris Jenkins, along with La Salle's Jordan Price, Penn's Darien Nelson-Henry and Temple's Jaylen Bond.

Before the season, St. Joseph's announced it was extending Phil Martelli's contract. Not a surprising bit of news. The interesting part: The school declined to say for how long. Athletic director Don DiJulia still won't say for how long. It could have been for a day or a decade. (Guessing about three years seems smarter than a day or a decade.) The point is that St. Joe's believed it needed to extend Martelli and announce it. That's partly a smart way to handle business, to let recruits relax about whether the coach recruiting them also would be coaching them.

PHIL MARTELLI calls them the bluebloods. You know, the royalty of the college basketball universe: North Carolina, Kentucky, Duke, Kansas, Michigan State. The usual suspects. None of them has won 91 of its last 104 games, as Villanova has, even if the only numbers many folks get hung up on are 2-2, which is 'Nova's record in the NCAA Tournament the past two seasons, first as a No. 2 seed and then a No. 1. Martelli doesn't happen to be one of those people. He views things differently, because of the way the Wildcats are getting it done.

SAINT JOSEPH'S forward James Demery came up with a steal had a breakaway layup with 7:25 remaining in the game. His team was down seven, and could not seem to get any closer. The bucket would have put momentum squarely on the side of St. Joe's, but instead, he slipped and turned it over. It immediately led to a corner deep ball from St. Bonaventure's Jaylen Adams on the other end that pushed the Bonnies' lead to double digits for the first time. It was just one of the daggers provided by Adams in the final minutes of the Hawks' 83-73 loss to St. Bonaventure at Hagan Arena on Wednesday night.

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.
