LOS ANGELES - It was one year ago today that UCLA Athletics and the world lost the greatest coach that ever lived, Coach John R. Wooden.

UCLA's legendary former basketball coach, who in 27 years led his teams to stunning triumphs, was just as well known for mentoring his players off the court and for his motivational "Pyramid of Success." Coach Wooden, who became a national icon in the years following his coaching career, died at 6:45 p.m. PT Friday, June 4, 2010 due to natural causes. He was 99.

UCLA continues to honor his legacy with the John R. Wooden Den in the Intercollegiate Athletics Hall of Fame and with the Wooden Academy.

To honor Coach Wooden and his legacy, the Pac-10 produced a Sportsmanship PSA that shared the teachings of his Pyramid of Success in each home arena throughout the 2010-11 season. The conference also had a special in-game presentation to the Wooden Family during the Pacific Life Pac-10 Basketball Tournament, and renamed the Pac-10 Coach of the Year Award in both men's and women's basketball to the John Wooden Coach of the Year Award.

No one has had a greater impact on college basketball than Wooden, who led UCLA to an unprecedented 10 NCAA Championships during his final 12 seasons as head coach. During his 27-years in Westwood, he amassed 620 wins, including a record winning streak of 88 games and posted four perfect 30-0 seasons.
