Looking back at 2019 MSU men's basketball Sweet 16 run; Canada won't send athletes to the Olympics; Darius Slay to honor Kobe Bryant; Update on Curtis Blackwell lawsuit

On today's Current Sports with Al Martin we take a look back at the 2019 MSU men's basketball team and its run in the NCAA Tournament. This time last year the Spartans had beaten Bradley and Minnesota to book a ticket to the Sweet 16. Listen to the vibrant conversation, which included an interview with former MSU men's basketball big man Anthony Ianni. Also, we give you an update on the possibility of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics being canceled, as Canada is the latest country that has declared that it won't send its athletes to the games. Al then tells you the latest concerning the Curtis Blackwell MSU football lawsuit and listen to how former Detroit Lions cornerback Darius Slay plans on honoring the late, great Kobe Bryant next season.
