This interview begins with Keightley recollection of the ROTC building fire in 1970 at the University of Kentucky which led to Governor Nunn's decision to call in the National Guard, and how those events affected the basketball team. He then discusses the athletic department and athletic directors. He also discusses the success of the basketball program as opposed to a historically less successful football program. Keightly specifically talks about University of Kentucky basketball players Wallace "Wah Wah" Jones and Ralph Beard.
