MSU tips off basketball seasons with “Spartan Things”

First MSU Madness since 2019-20 season

Michigan State's men's and women's basketball teams marked the official start of the 2022-23 season with the annual MSU Madness on Friday night.

This year's edition was the first MSU Madness since the 2019-20 season.

The theme for Friday night's 2022-23 MSU Madness incorporated the hit television show "Stranger Things" and was dubbed "Spartan Things."

Doors to the Breslin Center opened at 8:30 p.m. and fans lined up to get the new 2022-23 team posters. Players and coaches for both teams were available for autographs and pictures before MSU Madness started an hour later.

The night began with performances from the MSU Drumline, Spartan Dance and Cheerleading teams and the Spartan Marching Band.

The crowd was also treated to a performance by Starfarm, a Lansing-area 1980s cover band.
