In January of 2002, the Michigan State men's and women's basketball staffs moved into their new offices in the Alfred Berkowitz Basketball Complex, which was part of a Breslin Center expansion project. With the move, the Spartans now occupy one of the finest facilities in the nation.
The new addition added two auxiliary gymnasiums along with expanded office space for the men's and women's basketball offices. Along with new offices for the coaching staff, the addition contains a large video review room, a video workroom and a conference room for both programs.
The theater provides a showcase for Spartan basketball in the form of a mini movie theater. With seating for more than 30 people, it can handle a team film meeting or a press conference. Videos can be shown on a projection screen or a Smart Board, allowing the coaching staff to diagram plays directly on the screen.
The auxiliary gyms allow greater flexibility for practice times. A small balcony off the video workroom allows a great location from which to film practice. The gym also contains an auxiliary training room and an observation area, with seating for more than 20 visitors.
The Alfred Berkowitz Foundation pledged $2 million toward the $7.5 million project. The entire cost of the project was covered by private funds.
