Isaiah Briscoe Knows John Wooden…Kind of

Thursday’s game at UCLA will feature the two programs with the most National Championships, combining for 19.  The face of Kentucky’s – Adolph Rupp.  For UCLA – the Wizard of Westwood, the Legendary John Wooden.

Wooden coached at UCLA from 1948-1975, winning 10 Championships in 12 years with legends like Bill Walton and Lew Alcindor, stuff you probably already know, but it’s worth repeating for the younger generation.

Isaiah Briscoe is in that younger generation.  Only 12 when Wooden passed away, he knows the name for other reasons.  “I know they have a Wooden Award, right?  Is that him?”  Briscoe was honest with reporters after last night’s game, “OK, well I don’t know nothing else about him.  Just a different generation.”

Briscoe won’t have to know Wooden’s Pyramid of Success to beat UCLA on Friday, but he should probably study up on him a bit if he wants to win that award.

  1. The last paragraph says the game is Friday.

    Well, this will be bulletin board material for the UCLA fans. For their players, not so much. They probably barely know who Wooden was themselves.
