LOS ANGELES (AP) -John Wooden's condition improve again Thursday, and it appears the former UCLA basketball coach will be released from the hospital soon.
``Dad looks better than he did yesterday,'' daughter Nan Muehlhausen said in a statement. ``He is in good spirits. He has been up walking and he had a shave this morning. We are optimistic that he will leave the hospital in the next few days.''
The 97-year-old coaching great fell at his home Feb. 28, breaking his left wrist and collarbone. He was hospitalized the following day. His wrist is in a cast and his arm will have to be in a sling when he leaves the hospital.
Wooden coached the Bruins to an unprecedented 10 NCAA championships in a 12-year span before retiring after the 1974-75 season. His teams also had an 88-game winning streak.
The family has requested that people do not attempt to call or visit the hospital or mail items for autographs.
