The storied legacy of Michigan State Basketball comes to print November 13th, 2017 detailing 120 years of basketball prominence.

MSU VICTORY.jpgFormer MSU basketball legend Gregory Kelser wrote the foreword to the book, in which he sets the perfect tone of historical remembrance, and modern day reverence of the MSU Basketball program. The contents of the book are uniquely divided into 17 chapters, starting with the birth of the MSU Basketball program in 1898.  The chapters highlight the program’s best players (Magic Johnson and Mateen Cleaves) coaches (Jud Heathcote and Tom Izzo), and moments (Two National Championships).  VICTORY FOR MSU is a once in a generation book, which offers an unparalleled look at one of college basketball’s most historic programs.
