New Pauley to include John Wooden statue

When Pauley Pavilion reopens next year, it will include a statue of legendary UCLA basketball coach John Wooden, athletic director Dan Guerrero announced Tuesday in his weekly blog.

The statue will be sculpted by Blair Buswell, the head sculptor at the Pro Football Hall of Fame. It will sit on the north side of Pauley along Bruin Walk.

"I can not wait until we unveil the final product," Guerrero wrote.
