Basketball teams to start practice at free event

October 11, 2000

Izzone members and basketball fans from all over won’t be the only people flocking to the Breslin Student Events Center on Friday.

The men’s and women’s basketball teams and their coaches will be on hand for “The Main Event,” a midnight scrimmage that will kick off the 2000-2001 basketball seasons.

Fans will not only be able to check out this year’s teams, but they will also be able to meet the players, possibly snag an autograph or two, and more than anything - get an early start in catching the spirit that MSU basketball is noted for.

Coming off of a men’s NCAA Championship has made MSU basketball more popular than ever.

“We are excited about starting our new season with ‘The Main Event,’” said men’s head basketball coach Tom Izzo in a press release. “This is a great opportunity for fans to get an early look at our team. It also gives our team a chance to interact with people whose support is so important to our success. We look forward to seeing a lot of families at the Breslin Center along with people who might not otherwise have a chance to see us play in person.”

“The Main Event” is slated to begin shortly after midnight Friday. Doors will open at 10:30 p.m. Admission is free.
