Overview

In 1973, John Wooden became the first person to be enshrined in the Basketball Hall of Fame as both a player and a coach. By 2010, the year of his death at the age of 99, he had become something of a living legend. Continually beloved by his players, with awards and athletic facilities named in his honor and his philosophies immortalized, the legacy of Coach Wooden was apparent well before his passing. This commemorative portrait of a marvelous individual reintroduces the players he coached, his many accomplishments on and off the court, and reveals the impact he had on the lives of countless others. As one of the most iconic figures in sports history, the “Wizard of Westwood" had achieved such feats as a record-setting ten NCAA basketball championships—including seven in a row. Whether celebrating his championship playing career at Purdue or his unmatchable coaching record at UCLA, the book demonstrates that Wooden’s life is one well worth remembering.
