John Wooden The Indiana Story DVD

Item Number: DVD01


A video production of The Indianapolis Star. Runtime: approx. 35 minutes.

As Pacers announcer Bob "Slick" Leonard puts it, "Johnny Wooden IS Indiana basketball." This Indianapolis Star documentary shows why.

Through hundreds of photos, archival video and interviews with Larry Bird, Steve Alford, Bobby Plump and other Hoosier luminaries, "John Wooden: The Indiana Story" captures the coach's formative years in Centerton and Martinsville, and how he married his high school sweetheart in Indianapolis. It details his heroics at Purdue, and his little-known years as a pro basketball star. It shows how he enlisted in the World War Ii effort and - but for a last-minute twist of fate - would have been aboard an aircraft carrier that met with disaster. And it revelas how Wooden helped break down a national color barrier while at Indiana State.
