Keating Hosts First Annual Men's Basketball Reunion

This past weekend Head Coach Kerry Keating hosted the first annual Santa Clara men's basketball players and coaches' reunion. It was a great afternoon of barbeque, basketball, bag toss, bocce and stories from the past.

Over 30 past players from the 1950's thru 2000's were in attendance. The current team members were able to connect with the former Broncos who left their blood, sweat and in some cases tears on the floor. Members of the 1952 final four team such as Bob Peters and Don Benedetti were in attendance.

A highlight of the event was an epic 60 minute table tennis match between Bud Ogden and John Bryant that ended in a tie. It was a gathering of a unique Santa Clara family, and a lasting legacy of Santa Clara athletics.
