Bigger than ever! 7 ft tall statue of Coach Wooden at Mackey Arena in INDY. 2021 March Madness. Coach was 3 time All-American at Purdue. Coached UCLA to victory of Purdue at MacKey in 67/68 with Alcindor/Jabbar at center. Also 7 ft tall!
Coach Wooden's collection of memorabilia kept growing over the years but he knew where everything was, including the Pyramid of Success on the wall with pictures of his 10 March Madness teams designed by Nell. It is now at the JD Morgan Center at UCLA.2
Coach Jim Powers gives Coach Wooden (photo on wall) thumbs up! Played forward under Wooden at South Bend Central H.S. & Indiana State in the 40s: “Coach Wooden taught 100% effort is success.”
Later Powers coached Mike Warren at SB Central. Pointed him towards Wooden at UCLA.
Congrats to Coach Wooden. WOODEN ON LEADERSHIP just selected among greatest books on leadership ever written!
His leadership was based on skill, hard work, character . . . and the most powerful tool of all, leading by example.
