On this "St. Patrick's Day" version of "Current Sports with Al Martin" we start the show by updating you on the wild Michigan men's basketball game versus Oklahoma State in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. An in-show update is provided. Al then transitions to the firing of former Indiana men's basketball coach Tom Crean. How long has this move been brewing? Al and engineer Isaac Constans then provide a preview of tonight's MSU/Miami NCAA tournament game, while also touching on the Spartan women's big dance matchup against Arizona State tonight! 

The show closes out with coverage from yesterday's Pewamo-Westphalia girl's basketball win over Maple City Glen Lake. Al brings postgame coverage to the show, talking with P-W junior guard Emily Spitzley and head coach Steve Eklund. The Pirates play for the Class C state title tomorrow at 4pm against Detroit Edison! Good luck to the Pirates!
