Today's "Current Sports with Al Martin" centers on the Larry Nassar criminal sexual assault sentencing, which proceeded this morning at 9am at Ingham County Circuit Court in Lansing. The hearing is taking place under Judge Rosemarie Aquilina and is scheduled to run through Friday, with about 88 victims, or their advocates, expected to give statements prior to Nassar's sentencing. Al provides thoughts on the statements and plays audio from two of the statements made this morning. Reaction from listeners is also brought to the table. Who else should be held accountable? Is Michigan State University at fault? How will the survivors find the strength to move on? We try our best to answer those questions, and more, on today's Current Sports. 

Also, to close the show, we briefly address Michigan State men's basketball. On Wednesday's show, be sure to tune in as we roll-in coverage from today's Tom Izzo press conference and media availability for players. See you tomorrow!
