Timothy was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2002. His citation is below:
From 1986 to 1990, Washington College’s basketball program experienced an era of success only matched by the teams that represented the College in the early 1920s and early 1940s. Coach Tom Finnegan’s recruiting success during this period involved a number of outstanding recruits from the Baltimore area. One of these, Tim Keehan, arrived in 1986 from Calvert Hall High School, and much of the success of the teams that represented the College during the next four years can be attributed to him. The 1989-90 team that progressed to the Final Four of the NCAA Division III and finished third in the nation was led by Tim Keehan.
Tim was selected to the Honorable Mention classification for the National All-American Squad his last two years of college competition. His additional honors include being selected to the first team All-Middle Atlantic District team in 1988-90, and the MAC Southeast first team in 1987-88, 1988-89 and 1989-90. In other tournament competition, he was chosen Most Valuable Player in the Washington College-sponsored Wild Goose Classic in 1987 and 1988, and to the All-Tournament Team in 1989. In 1988 he was selected the MVP in both the Frostburg State University and the Muhlenberg College’s invitational tournaments.
His scoring accomplishments include the following, which place him among the elite scorers to have represented the College since 1913. Over four years he accrued 1,574 points, scoring 287 his freshman year when Washington College lost to F&M in the MAC Championship Game; 321 in his sophomore year when WC again made the MAC playoffs; 437 points in his junior year when WC was selected to play in the NCAA Regionals; and 529 points in his senior year when the Sho’men finished third in the nation.
Tim Keehan certainly ranks among the top players to have represented the Sho’men on the basketball playing floor.
During his college years Tim was an active member of the Theta Chi Fraternity. Upon graduation, he was awarded the distinguished Postgraduate NCAA Scholarship in recognition of both his academic and athletic accomplishments.
At present, Tim is the Manager of Business Planning and Sales Manager for the F.I.L.A
Washington College considers it an honor and privilege to induct Michael Timothy Keehan into its Athletic Hall of Fame on this 5th day of October, 2002.
