A few months after beloved UCLA basketball Coach John Wooden passed away, the campus honored his memory with a day of events celebrating what would have been his 100th birthday. Students from across campus visited Los Angeles-area students at the UCLA Community School and University High School to share Wooden's words of wisdom.

Watch UCLA students pass Wooden's teachings on to the next generation with lessons about the Pyramid of Success — including in coloring book form! — and hear how they have absorbed Wooden's theories on a life well-lived. Coach would be proud of how these Bruins made his 100th birthday "a masterpiece."
