Yes he does.
The Wizard of Westwood’s grandson was at the XL Center to see the UConn women win their 89th consecutive game, breaking the record set by his grandfather’s teams in the early 70s.
This is what he told the AP, when asked about a women’s team breaking a record set by men:
Greg Wooden said in the last decade of his life, coach Wooden thought the best basketball was being played at the collegiate level, “and it wasn’t by the men.”
He said his grandfather believed that women’s teams, especially Connecticut, were playing his style of basketball, and liked the way they emphasized team above all else.
“He liked the way they passed the ball, the way they had quite a few stars who could have scored probably a lot more points on other teams, but were willing to sacrifice for the best of the team.”
Can we let it go now? (I know, stupid question.)
