Barack-etology, NCAA Tournament, Sexual Assault, Domestic Violence, Mateen Cleaves, Branden Dawson, Rob Blackburn, and University of Michigan Basketball Preview.

On today's "Current Sports with Al Martin" the clock is ticking closer to the commencement of the round of 64, and with that, President Barack Obama has filled out his last bracket in the Oval Office. Al and engineer Isaac Constans sift through his picks to find the best ones. Then, it's onto the ugly situation facing two former Michigan State basketball stars. Mateen Cleaves and Branden Dawson both face serious allegations for sexual assault and domestic violence, respectively; Current Sports breaks down the cases against both.

Afterwards, Jason Ruff, Current Sports beat reporter, introduces Rob Blackburn, new coach of the Michigan State women's club hockey team, to the show in an exclusive feature. And finally, Al and Isaac preview the Michigan-Tulsa play-in game with the help of a special caller who has particularly strong feelings about the matchup.
