While we know you come here to read about football, it is impossible to separate Indiana from its basketball roots. Few men embody Indiana basketball. John Wooden was one of those few. Born in Hall, Indiana, Wooden's family eventually moved to Martinsville where he led his high school basketball team to the championship three times, winning one in 1927. He went on to coach high school basketball at South Bend Central High before taking a job at Indiana State. He stayed at Indiana State from 1946-1948. After that, he went on to UCLA. At UCLA, he became a living legend. Though everyone associated Coach Wooden with Los Angeles, we all knew him as an Indiana basketball icon. Wooden was 99 years old when he died yesterday, four months shy of his 100th birthday. Rest in peace.
