LOS ANGELES(AP)—Former UCLA basketball coach John Wooden has died. The Wizard of Westwood was 99.

The university said Wooden died Friday night of natural causes at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, where he had been hospitalized since May 26.

In the history of college basketball, no coach or school has come close to Wooden’s 10 NCAA championships.

Wooden’s career record at UCLA was 620-147, not including 47 NCAA tournament wins, and his overall mark for 40 years as a college coach was 885-203, an .813 winning percentage that remains unequaled.

He won his 10 titles over a 12-year span from 1963-75. During that time his teams were 335-22, including four 30-0 seasons. His UCLA teams also had a record winning streak of 88 games, and won 38 straight games in NCAA tournaments.
