Sorry for the short notice, but former UCLA All-American, TV analyst and general hoops philosopher Bill Walton will conclude his Pac-12 College Bus Tour with an appearance today at 1 p.m. in the Haas Pavilion Club Room, west side.
Walton will talk for about an hour — on topics ranging from John Wooden to the Grateful Dead to the college experience – and will take questions from Cal students and anyone who wishes to attend. Walton says no topic is off-limits and don’t be surprised if he discusses his fondness for Berkeley.
Cal radio personality Todd McKim will serve as moderator.
This is the 10th and final stop on Walton’s tour of the Pac-12 (he skipped two schools). He was a three-time national collegiate player of the year at UCLA, leading the Bruins to a 60-0 record his sophomore and junior seasons.
Sports Illustrated recently named him the second-greatest player in the 75-year history of the NCAA tournament. No. 1? His UCLA predecessor, Lew Alcindor/Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
