JOHNSON CITY, TN- ETSU basketball fans got quite a treat Saturday afternoon at the Mall in Johnson City, as former Buc great Keith “Mister” Jennings met with fans at the signing for his book, ‘The Basketball Chronices of Mister Jennings.’
“After my hometown, East Tennessee State, Johnson City area was the place I wanted to come and speak,” said Jennings. “The love I’ve been getting from the people I’ve known from back then has been truly great.”
Jennings was inducted into the Southern Conference Hall of Fame this year in a class that included NBA star Steph Curry. Jennings played professional ball for 13 years, including stints with the Golden State Warriors and Denver Nuggets.
“Just makes me feel good about the type of work that I’ve put in to be recognized in that type of atmosphere and platform,” said Jennings. “And especially to go in with Steph Curry, that’s definitely a good feeling.”
