Detroit Tigers; MSU Basketball Recruiting; Brian Bowen; Brandon McCoy; Michigan Spring Game; NBA Playoffs; Weekend Winners.

Walking out of the weekend, the Detroit Tigers have the joint second best record in the majors at 8-4. Current Sports engineer Isaac Constans is hosting following the Easter break and uses the break in play to reflect on why the Tigers have been firing on all cylinders to start the season. What's the difference, and is it sustainable? Yet while the Tigers have started well, Isaac argues that a bit of good fortune has come into play. Then, the Jordan Brand Classic put the spotlight on some of the nation's best high school basketball talent, including two MSU recruits and one signee. Just as importantly though were the comments of the highly coveted Brian Bowen following the game. While competition scares some, it could do the opposite for the five-star small forward. Lastly, the NBA playoffs and University of Michigan football top off the Weekend Winners, while Isaac laments the loss of Chyna Thomas, the sister of Boston Celtics star Isaiah Thomas.
