John Wooden Passes Away

Former UCLA basketball coach John Wooden died of natural causes at the age of 99 today. Wooden is considered one of the greatest basketball coaches of all time, building a dynasty at UCLA with 10 national championships. Seven of those were consecutive, between 1967 and 1973.

Wooden's passing is important for the SMBA '11, as many guest speakers and professors have recommended Wooden's books. His books, advice, and life lessons all lend themselves to success on and off the basketball court and will surely help the class navigate the challenges faced in the sports industry.
