St. John's coach Steve Lavin won't be the only member of the program watching Tuesday night's exhibition game against C.W. Post on TV. Lavin is home recovering from surgery to treat prostate cancer.

The Red Storm will also be without second-year assistant coach Rico Hines, who is recovering from Achilles surgery on Tuesday.

Lavin also announced the addition of walk-ons Gerard Rivers and Samuel Sealy-James.

Rivers, a freshman guard from Lancaster, Ca. and Sealy-James, a 6-8 forward and Longwood High School graduate will give 10 players for tonight's game.
