Michigan State men's basketball Media Day; Tom Izzo press conference; Marshall Hollingsworth of Lansing Ignited on possible ending of franchise

On today's Current Sports with Al Martin we highlight Michigan State men's basketball media day. The Spartans season is now less than a month away. Listen to a bit of what head coach Tom Izzo had to say about the lofty expectations for this upcoming season, including possibly being ranked the preseason number one team in the nation for the first time in program history. We then invite Lansing Ignite midfielder Marshall Hollingsworth to discuss the rumor of Ignite ending the franchise after just one season. Hollingsworth details a tense team meeting that took place at the beginning of the week that addresses the soccer club ending.
