Reggie Keely looks into the camera after Ohio's win over Western Michigan in the MAC semifinals

Former Ohio Basketball forward Reggie Keely took to Twitter Monday night to announce he is continuing his basketball career professionally with the Dan Helder Kings of the Dutch Basketball League.

“It’s pretty much official, I will be in the Netherlands this August,” Keely tweeted.

Den Helder finished sixth out of 10 teams in the DBL in 2012-2013 with a record of 18-18.

Keely finished his career with the Bobcats in April as a member of Ohio Basketball’s most successful class in program history. During his time with Ohio, the Bobcats won the Mid-American Conference tournament twice, made two NCAA Tournament appearances (including the Sweet 16 in 2012) and appeared in four post season tournaments.

The 6-foot-9 forward from University Heights, Ohio, finished his college career with 1131 points and 654 rebounds. He also is seventh in Ohio history with 107 career blocked shots and owns the fifth highest career field goal percentage in Ohio history at .525.

Keely joined Ohio in 2009 as a member of a recruiting class that featured fellow Ohio standouts Ivo Baltic and D.J. Cooper. Keely is the first member of last season’s senior class to get a professional deal. Cooper has received interest from European teams but is currently working out with several NBA teams (including Portland and Golden State) before the NBA Draft on Thur., June 27.
