Keith Waleskowski

Keith Waleskowski played for the UD men's basketball team from 1999-2004. Waleskowski committed to Dayton without a scholarship, but after redshirting his first year, he earned that award with four “Shorty” Sharpenter rebounding awards and four post-season appearances (two NIT, two NCAA).

Waleskowski is 19th in career scoring (1,515), fifth in games played (129), second in offensive rebounds (317), sixth in rebounding (1,092) seventh in minutes played (3,807), eighth in FT% (.781), and eighth in blocked shots (70) at UD. 

Over his career, he led the Flyers in rebounding four times, FT% three times, and FG% twice. The forward from Alter High School in Kettering was just the second four-time rebounding leader in school history (Ryan Perryman was first). Waleskowski missed averaging a double-double by three total rebounds as a senior.

He was the Thomas Luppe award winner as a freshman and the White-Allen MVP as a senior.  He was the first recipient of the UHL Endowed Family Scholarship.

Beyond UD, Waleskowski was First Team All-Atlantic 10 as a senior, Second Team as a junior, and All-Rookie as a freshman. He also was the Most Valuable Player of the 2003 EA Sports Maui Invitational. 

After graduating from UD, Waleskowski enjoyed a successful, nine-year playing career in Europe. He spent five years in Spain, three in Italy, and one in Germany. 

Waleskowski continues his close ties with UD as a co-host of Flyer Feedback and guest color commentator with WHIO radio.
