PROVO, Utah (AP) -BYU basketball coach Dave Rose says he appears to be free of cancer and plans on being back next season.
Rose underwent emergency surgery earlier this month, when doctors removed his spleen and a mass that tested positive for cancer. The tumor had started in Rose's pancreas and spread to his spleen and caused internal bleeding.
He held a news conference Wednesday and said the surgery apparently got the entire tumor. Rose said it was a scary diagnosis, but the kind of tumor he had was slow-growing and treatable.
Because there are no signs of cancer remaining, Rose said he won't have to go through chemotherapy this summer. He plans to rest and return to his team this fall.
