His favorite story was the Villanova University Men’s Basketball National Title run in 2016. The Villanova alum, who studied Communication and Philosopher, watched the game-winning 3-pointer courtside.
“As a former Villanova basketball manager when I was an undergrad, and a current Adjunct Professor, it was the perfect marriage, NBC and ‘Nova, of personal passions. Covering that season and the wild ride during tournament was a dream come true,” said Keith.
