The "Current Sports with Al Martin" 2 Minute Drill reports from Friday night's Michigan State men's basketball win over Wisconsin. The game was secondary to the trying week that it has been for the university in wake of the Larry Nassar sex abuse scandal. The week was made even more challenging when an ESPN report was released, highlighting a perceived lack of accountability when it comes to sexual abuse within the Spartans men's basketball team and football program. 

 Head coaches Tom Izzo and Mark Dantonio both addressed the media in what was an emotional and tense room. 


Geoff Kimmerly, media and content coordinator of the Michigan High School Athletic Association, joins Current Sports host Al Martin and explains why Michigan State men's basketball commit Thomas Kithier was ruled ineligible after deciding to transfer from Macomb Dakota to Clarkston.
