UCLA Unveiling Wooden Statue In Run-Up To Pauley Reopening
UCLA on Friday afternoon will unveil a statue of late HOF coach John Wooden outside Pauley Pavilion. The unveiling, attended by members of the Wooden and Edwin Pauley families, "will lead into a weeklong celebration of the reopening of Pauley Pavilion" after its $136M renovation (ESPNLA.com, 10/12). Wooden's "arms will be folded (of course), and he'll be clutching a game program" in the likeness. He will be "standing – something Wooden seldom did while coaching" (L.A. TIMES, 10/24).
