St. John’s head coach Steve Lavin will undergo treatment for prostate cancer, the university said in a release early Friday.

Lavin was diagnosed with an early stage of prostate cancer this past fall, and will continue coaching without interruption.

“My family feels fortunate that through annual health exams, we detected my condition at an early stage,” Lavin said in the release. “This past fall I didn’t want to distract our team, but with the season behind us, we are now working with medical experts and taking the proper steps to tackle this health challenge head on.”

Lavin, who led St. John’s to the NCAA tournament this past season for the first time since 2002, is 46 years old.
