Simi Valley, Royal Get Visit From Wooden

February 13, 2001|DANNY SCHUMACHER

Former UCLA coach John Wooden attended Friday's Marmonte League game between Simi Valley High and host Royal.

Wooden's granddaughter, Mikali Bender, had seven points and six steals for Simi Valley in a 41-26 victory.

"Having John Wooden watch you coach, I was probably the most nervous person in the gym," Simi Valley Coach Dave Murphy said. "I don't know who was more nervous, me or [Bender]."

Several autograph seekers approached Wooden, who kindly obliged, and many others wanted to shake his hand, including coaches Jerry Mike of Valencia and Dave Munroe of Hart.

"It was a thrill and an honor," Mike said.
