1969 Men's Basketball Team Honored At Halftime
By: UCLA Athletics

March 9, 2009

At halftime of the March 7 regular-season finale at Pauley Pavilion, UCLA honored its 1969 NCAA champion men's basketball team. Many of the players, such as Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Lynn Shackelford and Sidney Wicks, were in attendance. UCLA also hosted a pre-game reception for the players and coaches from that team.

In addition, representatives of the Naismith Award were on hand to present Abdul-Jabbar with a plaque to commemorate the 40th anniversary of his selection as the first-ever Naismith Award. Abdul-Jabbar then addressed the fans in attendance.
