Queens, NY (Sports Network) - Steve Lavin has prostate cancer and will undergo treatments in the coming weeks, but the St. John's men's basketball coach is expected to continue his coaching duties without interruption.

The school announced Lavin's condition Friday, saying he was diagnosed with an early stage of the disease last fall.

"My family feels fortunate that through annual health exams, we detected my condition at an early stage," Lavin, 46, said in a statement.
