On today's "Current Sports with Al Martin" it's not just bracket-burning season for men's college basketball. The NCAA women's basketball tournament is forgotten by many but not Current Sports, which begins today's show on that note. Following an overview of the women's tournament, Al and engineer Isaac Constans boast--or bemoan--of their bracket's status so far and preview the upcoming Final Four on the men's side. Does this year's elite competition lack the prestige of previous years, however? Different answers are weighed, and callers collaborate on the answer. Then, Mike Wilson, South Carolina beat reporter for SEC Country, describes the meteoric rise of the Gamecocks to the Final Four. From head coach Frank Martin to an energetic fan base, get a look into what making a first Final Four is like for a school. Finally, Al and Isaac scrutinize the Detroit Pistons' chances of making the playoffs with the final stretch of the season underway.
