Lavin joins NCAA tourney TV crew

St. John's head coach Steve Lavin will appear as a guest analyst on CBS' and Turner's coverage of the NCAA tournament on Saturday and Sunday.

Lavin will work alongside hosts Greg Gumbel and Ernie Johnson, and analysts Charles Barkley, Greg Anthony and Kenny Smith.

"I'm looking forward to working this weekend as a studio analyst covering the NCAA tournament for CBS Sports and Turner Sports," Lavin said. "There is no better sporting event than March Madness and contributing as a broadcaster is the next-best thing to participating as a coach. Next March the Johnnies plan to be back in the field of 68, but in the meantime I consider it a privilege to work alongside the expert studio crew in NYC."
