John Wooden, the Wizard of Westwood and head coach of UCLA basketball from 1948-1975, a career that included 10 National Championships in a 12-year span, is reportedly "battling" for his life at UCLA Medical Center, according to SB Nation's UCLA blog, Bruins Nation.
Bruins Nation cited a source who said that this would "likely be the last time" Wooden would be hospitalized, adding, "He has stopped eating, and they do not believe he will survive through the weekend."
The news regarding Wooden is also being reported by KCBS 2 in Los Angeles, which is saying the legendary coach is in "grave condition." The report adds that Wooden, 99, "hasn't eaten in the last couple days and is very ill."
