Happy 99th birthday to the Hoosier basketball legend who didn't routinely embarrass the state:
John Wooden will be honored today with highway signs that tie to Indiana history and the Martinsville legend's love of reading.
The signs are part of a celebration of the coach's 99th birthday today around the area where he grew up.
What a life he's had and what an impact he made. Here are 99 things you might not know about the coach. This one is interesting: "His top salary while coach at UCLA was $35,000." Being a legend pays a little better these days.
