Reports: John Wooden in 'grave' condition

John Wooden, the 99-year-old legendary coach of the UCLA basketball dynasty, has been hospitalized in "grave condition" at the UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles, according to KCAL9/CBS2 in LA. 

 

The station also reports that the first person ever selected for the Basketball Hall of Fame as a player and coach has not eaten for the last "couple of" days.

 

The Washington Post retracted an earlier story saying Wooden had passed.  

 

The "Wizard of Westwood" coached at UCLA from 1948–75 where he won 10 national championships, including an unprecedented 10 NCAA championships in his final 12 seasons and a record seven straight from 1967 to 1973. The Bruins also won 88...

NBA will revisit double technical issue

LOS ANGELES -- Speaking to reporters before Game 1 of the NBA finals, commissioner David Stern said that the NBA would revisit the issue of having double technical fouls count against a player's allotment during the postseason. Celtics center Kendrick Perkins has accumulated six technical fouls and one more would trigger an automatic one-game suspension. Doc Rivers has said repeatedly over the last week that double technicals should not count against a player. "I think Doc actually has a point," Stern said. "As much as I hate to agree with Doc."

Rivers on health: 'Everybody is good'

LOS ANGELES -- Doc Rivers said just prior to Game 1 of the NBA finals that, "Everybody is good. Everybody is healthy, feels good, rested and ready to play. So, there's no issues on our end." There is one issue. Marquis Daniels is not available for the start of the series, although he told WEEI.com when he arrived at the arena that he is "feeling much better." As for Rasheed Wallace, Rivers' primary concern is not his back, but his conditioning. He has missed the majority of practice time since injuring his back.

Bogar accepts blame for outs at home

Third base coach Tim Bogar was forced to hold his second post-game media gathering of the season, this time after the Sox’ 9-8 loss to the A’s in which he waved two runners in nobody out, coming away with no runs to show for his efforts.

 

“Obviously with nobody out, two bad decisions and I got two runners thrown out at the plate,” he said. “Obviously both times I was wrong so I take full responsibility for it.”

 

The first instance where Bogar ran into trouble came in the third inning when Victor Martinez barreled around third base from first after on Kevin Youkilis drive to left. Martinez, who has been battling a sore left big toe, was sent waved in by the third base coach only to get tagged on the shoulder by Oakland catcher Kurt Suzuki after the A’s made a solid relay from left fielder Eric Patterson to shortstop Cliff Pennington to home plate.
