March Madness, NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament, Louisville Scandal, Upsets and Predictions, Adam Biggers, and Tickled Tuesday.

It's a hoop-filled "Current Sports with Al Martin" today as the most frantic time of the year is here for sports journalists gets underway. First, the Louisville scandal is explored in greater depths. Al and engineer Isaac Constans provide their picks for the entire first round, including one upset you wouldn't see coming. Analysis is provided on individual match-ups but the pair explain why you can't put too much stock into bracketology. And is the NCAA tournament overrated? That discussion continues with the guest, Adam Biggers, sports writer from "Today's U Sports," who also touches on what the team down the road, the Michigan Wolverines, has potential to do. Finally, the show closes with 'Tickled Tuesday.'
