Roy Williams on John Wooden

Roy Williams released a statement Saturday on the passing of UCLA coaching legend John Wooden ...

"I am deeply saddened with the passing of Coach Wooden. He was absolutely the greatest mentor for more people than anyone I have ever known. I was very fortunate to call Coach Wooden a friend. He helped me and mentored me personally. Everyone who came into contact with him will miss him. Everyone who has ever known him feels sad with his passing although we know this is what he wanted – to be back with his wife. I will miss him and will always understand that no one ever shared as much as John Wooden shared."
