Here is the full statement from Romar regarding the passing of his mentor, John Wooden:
"Many men and women have impacted their profession in a positive way. Not many have impacted their profession and impacted people's lives away from their profession.
"John Wooden is the most humble, most wise man that I have ever met. Those that have spent any time with him were around a legend.
"Many books have been written by him and he's been quoted quite a bit. He is one that will continue to be quoted throughout history, not just in the game of basketball, but in other areas as well.
"We lost a giant as a coach and a giant as a person. But I don't feel bad for John Wooden at all because he accomplished much and lived a long life. I know that he is with the Lord."
Here is the full release from the official Washington website.
