UCLA Confirms John Wooden's Hospitalization, Can't Comment On Anything Else

UCLA has confirmed via a press release that legendary basketball coach John Wooden has been hospitalized.

The campus has been authorized to confirm that Coach Wooden is a patient at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center. Per the wishes of the Wooden family, UCLA will not comment on his condition.

No one from the Wooden Family or UCLA staff is available for interviews regarding Coach Wooden.

UCLA had previously been silent on the matter citing the wishes of the Wooden family. However, swirling rumors and apparent misinformation more than likely caused them to make this statement.

UCLA fans have been gathering at SB Nation's Bruins Nation to discuss memories of Wooden and offer up thoughts on "Coach".
