Update: John Wooden Dies at 99
Legendary UCLA basketball coach John Wooden was brought to UCLA Medical Center Sunday and was listed in grave condition Thursday, according to multiple reports.
Wooden, 99, has not eaten in the past few days, according to reports.
Earlier stories indicated Wooden had died, but a UCLA spokesman told FanHouse that "reports of his death are erroneous." He provided no further details on Wooden's health.
Former UCLA star Bill Walton confirmed that the coach was indeed hospitalized but did not comment further.
"He's the greatest," Walton told the Associated Press. "We love him."
The illustrious coach won 10 national championships at UCLA, where he coached from 1948-1975, and is noted by many as the greatest basketball coach on any level. His teams won 88 straight games between 1971 and 1974, an NCAA record.

Despite his age, Wooden continued to watch UCLA basketball games on the sideline at Pauley Pavilion. The UCLA court was named after him and his wife, Nell.
Throughout his retirement from basketball, Wooden has written numerous books, revolutionized what he calls "The Pyramid of Success" and is a legendary icon to all basketball coaches.
Wooden's long list of honors include the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and he was named by ESPN as the greatest coach of the 20th century.
Wooden would turn 100 this October.
