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.
