On today's "Current Sports with Al Martin" we discuss breaking coverage on the arrest of William Strampel, the former dean of the Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine who was Larry Nassar's boss. Strampel was arrainged today on several charges stemming from an investigation into the university. Al talks with Michigan Public Radio reporter Cheyna Roth about the happenings of the morning and afternoon pertaining to Strampel's arraignment. 

We then invite to the show respected, longtime college hockey reporter Neil Koepke of MSUSpartans.com. Koepke breaks down the Frozen Four and gives his prediction on which team will win it all. He elaborates on the success of the Big Ten Conference, which has three representatives in the final four teams. 

A chat with DeShaun Tate of CBS Radio in Atlanta closes the show. Tate covers all things men's college basketball and recaps the road to the Final Four. Does Loyola Chicago have what it takes to continue the Cinderella run and upset Michigan? Is the battle of number one seeds in Villanova / Kansas too close to call? That, and more, is discussed!
