Numerous Former Players Attend Nell and John Wooden Court Ceremonies

Here is a list of former players and coaches who were in attendance on December 20 for the dedication of the Nell and John Wooden Court. The list includes those who attended either the pre-game luncheon, the ceremony and game, or both events.

The luncheon, held at Covel Commons, was an invitation-only event. ABC's Al Michaels, who called Bruin games on KTLA in 1973-74 and 1974-75, was the master of ceremonies. Chancellor Al Carnesale and Athletic Director Dan Guerrero spoke and Chancellor Carnesale introduced Coach Wooden, who was given a standing ovation by his former players and other dignitaries prior to and following his speech.

The event also featured a longer version (20 minutes) of the video shown at the dedication ceremony. The tape was narrated by former UCLA television announcer Dick Enberg and featured interviews with several former players, including Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Willie Naulls, Michael Warren, Keith Erickson, Walt Hazzard and Lynn Shackelford, as well Ann Meyers Drsydale. The video also featured numerous historical photos or Coach Wooden and his players.
