One of the most successful college basketball coaches in history, John Wooden's record 620 wins, 147 losses, and 10 NCAA championships in 12 years is legendary. However, the UCLA coach carries this high standard of success well beyond winning basketball games. An inspiring combination of biography and lecture, this film highlights the life and accomplishments of the "Wizard of Westwood" and presents Wooden offering his own guide to achieving competitive greatness in life, going step-by-step through the "Pyramid of Success."
