Adam Keefe was in his fourth NBA city in five days and was slowly recovering from a painful hamstring injury that sidelined him for six weeks, so it wasn't surprising that he didn't remember the 10th anniversary of Woodbridge's state basketball championship. "I had no idea it's been 10 years," Keefe said from his hotel room in Charlotte, N.C. But once he took a moment to reflect on those simpler times, 10 years seemed like 10 days to Keefe.

Center Adam Keefe of Woodbridge High School will lead an Orange County all-star basketball team against a team from Santa Barbara County at 7 tonight at San Marcos High School in Santa Barbara. Keefe, who ended his four-year high school career as the state's 11th all-time leading scorer with 2,212 points, will be matched for the first time against center Don MacLean of Simi Valley, the Southern Section's 4-A division player of the year.

Adam Keefe hasn't needed a cut man in a month, a season high. No opponent, or Utah Jazz teammate, has clipped his face in that time. In 35 games, Keefe has needed 28 stitches for various cuts and gashes, from his lower lip to above his left eye. Errant elbows have found their mark far too often this season, in Keefe's opinion. Still, there is a subtle message in this carnage. Keefe, a star at Woodbridge High and Stanford, has adapted in order to survive in the NBA.

Adam Keefe, a 6-foot 9-inch forward from Woodbridge High School, announced Monday that he has made a verbal commitment to Stanford University and will sign a national letter of intent with the Cardinal Wednesday. Keefe averaged 22.2 points, 12.8 rebounds and shot 57% from the field in leading Woodbridge to the Division II State basketball championship last season in Oakland. The Warriors won 18 straight games, including eight post-season games en route to the title.

Players? You want players? We have players. Starting with . . . THE BEST Adam Keefe (6-9, center), Woodbridge--Baby-faced and polite, Keefe is the county's best big man since LeRon Ellis. OK. So Ellis played last season. Keefe averaged 23 points and 12.8 rebounds a game last season. What seems to amaze people even more is his ability to play hard every game, be it blowout, summer league or state championship. Many think of him as the most fundamentally sound big player around.

As a basketball star, Adam Keefe of Woodbridge High School is about as flashy as a bowl of oatmeal. Substance? Keefe has plenty. Sugar-coated bravado? Forget it. Ask him about his 32 points and 15 rebounds in the Warriors' 68-60 overtime victory over Banning for the Southern Section 2-A championship Saturday. Or his career-high 34 points and 22 rebounds in a 73-65 semifinal victory over Victor Valley last Wednesday.

Karl Malone is called the "Mailman" because he always delivers. Less well-known is the Utah Jazz nickname for reserve forward Adam Keefe: "Trashman." Why? Because he's always picking up after everyone, including Malone. Keefe, who was the star at Woodbridge High and Stanford, is happy to do anything to carve out a niche in the NBA, happy because he has found a team that cares about winning--as a team.

Adam Keefe agreed to a five-year contract with the Atlanta Hawks. Keefe, a 6-foot-9, 230-pound power forward, averaged 25.3 points as a senior at Stanford and finished with an 18.6 average over four years. The Hawks made him the 10th pick overall in last month's NBA draft.

Deep down, Miles Keefe was hoping for Sacramento. A father always wants to stay close to his son and Irvine to Arco Arena is just a 45-minute flight up the coast. For the record, Adam Keefe said he didn't care. His demands of the NBA are few--just a jersey, an address and a few missed jump shots skidding off the glass within the general vicinity. So it was up to Mom to put the proper spin on Adam's selection by the Atlanta Hawks as the 10th pick in the 1992 NBA draft.

Along about now, the skeptics believed, Adam Keefe would start kicking himself, regretful that he returned to Stanford for his senior year instead of accepting the riches of the NBA. He would be physically beaten down, unable even with his broad shoulders and back to handle the burden of carrying a young, inexperienced team while being mugged in the low post game after game by defenders willing to try anything within the rules--and some not--to stop him.

Adam Keefe scored a game-high 27 points and pulled down 18 rebounds to lead Stanford to a 76-61 Pacific 10 Conference victory over California on Wednesday. Cal (6-7 overall, 0-3 in conference) pulled to within two points of the lead twice in the second half, at 50-48 and 52-50. But Stanford (11-1, 3-0) reeled off six consecutive points to take a 58-50 lead at the 8:03 mark. Cal was playing without its leading scorer and rebounder, forward Brian Hendrick--out with a sprained ankle.

Stanford's Adam Keefe, a 6-foot-9 center-forward from Woodbridge High School, announced Friday that he will stay in school for his final year of eligibility rather than make himself available for the NBA draft. Keefe, projected as a middle to lower first-round draft pick, averaged 21.5 points and 9.6 rebounds per game last season while leading the Cardinal to a 20-13 record and the NIT championship. He was runner-up in Pacific 10 player of the year balloting.
