10:18 AM ET 09.23 | Steve Lavin walked into the Carnesecca Arena lobby Saturday morning with a smile and left with an even larger grin. Meeting the media for the first time since compiling his nationally ranked recruiting class, the St. John's coach couldn't hide his enthusiasm for his young team. "This team is unique in that it's the deepest team I've ever coached," Lavin said prior to the Dribble for the Cure event at St. John's for pediatric cancer research. He has plenty of reasons for optimism, professionally and personally. Lavin said he is fully healthy after being diagnosed with prostate cancer last year and ready to resume full-time coaching duties after missing most of last season. "All the bloodwork has been clean and I'm cancer-free," Lavin said. "I clearly feel at a better place in terms of my stamina and my strength and my conditioning."

Wish Lavin the best...way too young to be dealing with prostate cancer.

UCLA fans wish he was back coaching them.

Speaking of, I want to welcome back the Bruins from Summer Vacation.

See you at class on Monday, losers.
