LOS ANGELES (AP) Nan Wooden, the daughter of late UCLA basketball coach John Wooden and a fixture at the Bruins games for years, died Tuesday. She was 87.
The school said she died of natural causes at a care facility in the San Fernando Valley, according to family members. She had suffered a series of strokes in recent years.
Wooden continued to attend UCLA's games long after her Hall of Fame father retired from coaching in 1975, when the Bruins won their 10th NCAA championship. She often sat in her father's reserved seat at Pauley Pavilion, which served as a gathering point for extended family and friends. The court there is named for her parents.
