NEW YORK (AP) — St. John’s coach Steve Lavin and Villanova’s Jay Wright will serve as guest studio analysts for NCAA tournament coverage this week.

CBS and Turner Sports said Wednesday that Wright would join the Atlanta studio Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

Lavin will be in the New York studio Saturday and Sunday with Charles Barkley, Greg Anthony and Kenny Smith.

Wright worked the regional finals for CBS last year, while Lavin was a longtime ESPN analyst before taking the St. John’s job.

Their teams both missed the tournament. Lavin was away from the bench for most of the season after prostate cancer surgery but watched games from a suite and plans to make a full return next year.
