On today's "Current Sports with Al Martin" at long last, MSU men's basketball snapped a three-game losing streak, and in the most savory fashion. Topping their rivals 70-62, the Spartans are comprehensively analyzed by Al and engineer Isaac Constans, both of whom were in attendance. Could this be the game to propel them forward, or is it just another result in a long season? Then, Al briefly reads comments from Detroit Pistons head coach Stan Van Gundy concerning President Donald Trump's travel ban. Afterwards, we invite Adam Biggers, Today's U Sports reporter, to give his thoughts on the college hoop landscape . Finally, the show reaches its close with a terse 'Weekend Winners,' but not before Al debuts his coverage of boxing this weekend in Lansing and reintroduces Current Sports' production assistant Jonathan Chun to the listeners.
