John Wooden’s Power

Today’s feel-good story comes from yesterday’s basketball victory of UCLA over Arizona. I didn’t realize it until the news this morning that the last basket of the game, the last ever at the old Pauley Pavilion was made by Tyler Trapani, a walk-on, who is John Wooden’s great-grandson. John Wooden, the winningest college coach ever and incredibly inspirational human being, died last June at age 99. Sometimes life is more poetic than fiction.
