    Lute Olson Tough blow

    Whether you like Lute Olson or not, this sucks:

    Lute Olsonís doctor said Tuesday that the former Arizona basketball coach had a stroke within the last year and he advised him to retire.

    The comments by Dr. Steven Knope at a news conference called by Olsonís family offer the first explanation for Olsonís sudden retirement last week, two days after he appeared at the Wildcatsí media day. Olson said at the time he was energized and looking forward to his 25th season with Arizona.

    Knope said an MRI confirmed the stroke in the frontal part of Olsonís brain, which left the Hall of Famer with severe depression and impaired judgment.
