05:32 PM ET 10.15 | UCLA has announced that it plans to unveil a statue of legendary men's basketball coach John Wooden on the North Plaza outside New Pauley Pavilion on Friday, Oct. 26. The coach, who won ten national championship in a 12-year period with the Bruins, would have celebrated his 102nd birthday last Sunday.

"The statue is a monument to a man who touched countless lives and showed us what it means to lead with integrity, humility, compassion and commitment," UCLA Chancellor Gene Block said. "The legacy of the late Coach Wooden transcends athletics, our campus and the local community. I speak for many when I say with pride that his image will forever grace the main entrance to Pauley Pavilion."
