John Wooden, great college basketball coach, has died

The media are reporting that John Wooden, retired coach of the UCLA Bruins men's basketball team, which won 10 national championships, has passed away, at age 99. Here's the NPR report.

According to a Wooden quotation given in Wikiquote, Wooden believed that talent is God-given. He also believed that success took more than talent.

The Wikipedia article on Wooden tells us that he was a practicing, and believing, Christian, and that he was the first person (and, so far, one of only three) inducted into the basketball Hall of Fame for his accomplishments as a basketball player, and also as a basketball coach.

God rest his soul. Thanks for reading.
