The weekend ahead is filled with sporting events in the East Lansing area, and "Current Sports with Al Martin" will be making the rounds. First and foremost, MSU football will host Senior Day, a Saturday game against Maryland. Before kickoff, there are  stories swirling around the program, and Al addresses the news that head coach Mark Dantonio has been listed as a semifinalist for a prestigious coach of the year award. With the turnaround this season, Al lists off all that Dantonio had to do in the course of one offseason, but engineer Isaac Constans debates the case of a few other programs who have impressed even more.  That's not the only event this weekend, however, as MSU men's and women's basketball, as well as men's soccer, have home games, too. Bouncing over to the Breslin Center, Julian Mitchell helps look ahead to the women's game. Mitchell, a beat reporter for MSU Impact Sports, addresses the hot start to the year, but the team has a Leviathan looming. Hear why the upcoming game is so important for momentum. As is customary on Current Sports, "Reflection Friday" has Al and Isaac give the stories to remember going into the weekend.
