Massimino Fighting Cancer

The New York Post reported today that "legendary coach Rollie Massimino is resting comfortably in a Philadelphia hospital after recent surgery to remove a cancerous tumor from his chest. Massimino, 76, who led Villanova to the 1985 NCAA championship in one of the greatest title games ever played, is said to be in excellent spirits, and doctors are confident they removed all of the cancer. He has told family and friends, he intends on coaching Northwood (Fla.) College this season as he has since 2006."

Please remember our beloved former coach in your thoughts and prayers.
