EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Hundreds of people turned out at Michigan State University to try to get a piece of Spartans basketball history.

The Lansing State Journal reports (https://on.lsj.com/2uhFJ0b ) pieces of flooring from Michigan State’s practice court were snapped up Friday at the East Lansing school’s Surplus Store.

Michelle and Thomas Cousineau left their house in Laingsburg with their three children around 6 a.m. Friday. They purchased three floor pieces for $20 each. Michelle Cousineau hopes to turn one into a coffee table and use the others for the top of a bar.

James Ives, the surplus store’s education and outreach coordinator, says several hundred additional floor pieces will be sold online next week.

The practice floor at the Breslin Center is being replaced as part of a $50 million renovation.
