NEW YORK (AP) - St. John’s coach Steve Lavin has had successful surgery to treat prostate cancer.
Lavin announced in April that he was diagnosed the previous September with an early stage of the disease. After continuing his coaching duties for about a year while pursuing a physician-recommended course of active surveillance, Lavin changed his treatment path to surgery.
Practice begins Oct. 14, and St. John’s first game is Nov. 7 against William & Mary.
In Lavin’s first season with the Red Storm they went 21-12 and made their NCAA tournament appearance since 2002.
