NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Golden State Warriors center Festus Ezeli sure knows how to celebrate in style, taking one of the Larry O’Brien championship trophies back to campus.

Ezeli helped the Warriors win the NBA title in June. He was back at Vanderbilt on Saturday as part of the Commodores’ festivities surrounding their football game against No. 10 Georgia.

He took part in the SEC Network’s “SEC Nation,” where he posed for plenty of selfies with fans and the golden trophy.

The center also visited Memorial Gym for a few more photos. Ezeli then stopped by Vanderbilt’s pregame radio show.

Ezeli says it felt good to be with fans who supported him from the start of his career while celebrating a special moment.

Ezeli was one of two Warriors to take a Larry O’Brien Trophy back to his college stomping grounds this weekend, with forward Draymond Green doing so at Michigan State. Green, who earlier this week announced that he would be donating $3.1 million to his alma mater, was the celebrity guest on “College Gameday” Saturday morning.
