Now that it’s been open for a few months, it’s time for the Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University to change things up. Some inaugural exhibits are departing, and three new exhibits go on display this Friday.

Terry Braverman kicks off the show with former coach Jud Heathcote, as he discusses the recruitment of Tom Crean and some past rivalries with Bobby Knight on the other side of the bench.

Current State’s Kevin Lavery checks out what gives the Spartan’s such a home court advantage.
