Update: 11:20 a.m.
Legendary men’s college basketball coach John Wooden (left) is resting comfortably after being taken to UCLA Medical Center on Wednesday due to dehydration.
Wooden, 99, was listed in “grave condition,” however, he “spent a restful night at the hospital,” according to KCAL9, a Los Angeles TV station.
He isn’t expected to leave the hospital and has not eaten in the last couple of days, according to an earlier KCAL 9 report.
Nicknamed ‘The Wizard of Westwood,’ he coached at UCLA from 1948-75 and won a record 10 national championships, including seven in a row.
The Indiana native was inducted in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame as a player in 1960 and as a coach in 1973.
Washington coach Lorenzo Romar, a former Bruins assistant, cites Wooden as one of his greatest role models.
