Last week on Current State, Michigan State University Athletic Director Mark Hollis shared his thoughts on the post-season prospects for the men’s and women’s basketball teams and spring sports. He also described infrastructure and design renovations at the Breslin Student Events Center. In 2018, the home of Spartan basketball will become home to a MSU basketball Hall of History and a 26,000 square foot entryway.

In part two of his talk with Hollis, Current State’s Mark Bashore asked about the fundraising involved in such projects.
