UCLA to unveil Wooden statue on campus

Members of Wooden's family are expected to attend. The bronze statue was paid for by a donation from athletic boosters and was created by Blair Buswell, who has sculpted many busts of Pro Football Hall of Fame inductees.
The $136 million renovation of UCLA's basketball arena began in March 2011. The building will re-open at the end of the month.
Wooden's UCLA teams won 10 national championships, including seven straight, during his 12 seasons as coach. He retired in 1975 with a record of 620-147 at UCLA. Wooden died in June 2010 at age 99. The court inside Pauley is named for him and his late wife Nell.
