“Coach John Wooden won with every different size, shape or (team) construction. He won with short pressing teams and with tall teams that couldn’t press and everywhere in between because he was such a great teacher of the game.
“He was very exacting about the fundamentals and details. There was a right way and a wrong way and no way in between. If he said, ‘Goodness, gracious, sakes alive,’ he was cussing at you, and that was the worst you ever heard.”
