2018-19 Season Events

We tipped off the 2018-19 season opened with our 10th annual Membership Tip-Off meeting on Monday, October 22nd. Similar to past seasons this was a unique opportunity to meet the players, tour behind scenes, hear from Coach Izzo, watch practice and participate in a keepsake photo op.

This year we will again have six luncheons throughout the season and may possibly add an exciting new event. In addition, we will help with the annual Food Drive chaired by Lupe Izzo and intend to again co-sponsor Pep Rallies at Post Season Tournaments.

Other than the first luncheon held on November 8th at Hawk Hollow, all of the other Luncheons this season are at Eagle Eye Golf Club on Chandler Road in Bath. Doors open at 10:45 am, and the program starts at 11:50 am and lasts to 1:00 pm. In addition to Coach Izzo or one of our assistant coaches, each luncheon features a guest speaker. Luncheons are open to both members and the general public, particularly if you bleed green. Memberships are always available at the door. No reservations are needed.

10th Annual MSU Rebounders Club Tip-Off

Our 10th Annual Membership Tip-Off was held on Monday, October 22nd in the Breslin Student Events Center. One of the Club's most popular events allowed the Club's new and returning members an up close look at MSU Men's Basketball. Loyal Spartans again this season had an opportunity to watch practice, tour behind the scenes including the new locker-room barbershop, have a Spartan keepsake photo taken, hear from Coach Izzo and meet and greet the players and other coaches and staff. This year the Club provided "player bio cards" for the team, which many used to get autographs from their favorite players. As always it was an exciting evening and a great way to tip-off another great season of MSU Basketball.
