 LOS ANGELES (AP) -John Wooden had a new cast put on his broken left wrist Tuesday and the 97-year-old UCLA coaching great's vital signs were good, his daughter said.
He remained hospitalized at an undisclosed location. Daughter Nan Muehlhausen said through a UCLA spokesman that she did not know when her father would be released.
Wooden broke his wrist and collarbone when he fell at his condo Thursday and underwent blood transfusions over the weekend.
``I think he's in a lot of pain,'' current UCLA coach Ben Howland said a day after visiting Wooden. ``His family is there with him just about 'round the clock and supporting him.''
Howland said Wooden watched third-ranked UCLA's 68-66 victory at Arizona on Sunday with his only son, Jim.
``It's hard to see him sitting there in that hospital bed,'' Howland said. ``I said to his granddaughter, `Boy, is he tough.'''
Wooden coached the Bruins to an unsurpassed 10 NCAA championships in the 1960s and '70s, including consecutive titles from 1967-73. His teams also had an 88-game winning streak.
