Fox Sports Net to honor John Wooden during Pac-10 basketball telecasts

February 25, 2011 |  3:59 pm

Fox Sports Net will honor legendary UCLA Coach John Wooden this weekend during its Pacific 10 Conference basketball telecasts with a series of vignettes about the man who guided the Bruins to a record 10 national titles. Wooden died in June at 99.

Replicas of Wooden's Pyramid of Success will be distributed to all fans at Pauley Pavilion, where UCLA plays host to Arizona, and at Hec-Ed Pavilion, where Washington plays host to Washington State. Coaches from all four teams have been asked to wear pyramid lapel pins to symbolize their participation in the tribute.

UCLA's game against Arizona, which starts at 1 p.m. Saturday, will be televised by Prime Ticket. Washington's game against Washington State, which starts at 7 p.m. Sunday, will be televised by Fox Sports West. The Bruins' home finale will be their final game at Pauley Pavilion before interior renovations force them to play elsewhere next season.
