UCLA coaching legend John Wooden has been hospitalized with a bout of pneumonia for two weeks, the athletic department said Friday, but is expected to make a full recovery.
Coach Ben Howland, whose Bruins visit Cal on Saturday, said he was happy to hear the 98-year-old icon is doing better. “Honestly, I didn’t know about it until today. They’ve kept it very quiet,” Howland said. “I called and left him a message.”
