Here is the preseason media poll for the Pacific-10:
4. Oregon State
5. Arizona State
10. Washington State
Here is the story I wrote on former UCLA hoops coach John Wooden being named the greatest coach of all-time by The Sporting News, as well as a football notebook.
Also, I will have plenty of updates from today’s Pac-10 media day.
Former UCLA coach John Wooden was feted during a two-hour luncheon in which he was named by the Sporting News as the best coach American sports history, regardless of sport.
Among those in attendance were former players Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Marques Johnson, Ken Heitz, Jamaal Wilkes, Fred Goss, Gary Cunningham and Kenny Washington.
Bill Walton was hoping to attend, but back problems kept him from it.
“The thing that’s really special to me is coach is probably the greatest person that I know outside of my mother and father in my lifetime,” UCLA coach Ben Howland said. “His integrity, his honesty, the way he lives his life, is a model for all of us.”
