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.

Leaders at Michigan State University have come under a great deal of criticism not only for the Larry Nassar scandal, but for how they have handled its aftermath.

"This is our fight song: No More Shadows. MSU Shadows protected Larry Nassar for more than 20 years."

Those were the words of MSU Associate Professor Anna Pegler-Gordon. 

Pegler-Gordon's stance was one variation on a familiar theme during Friday night's Michigan State University rally at The Rock. Hundreds gathered to honor the survivors of convicted sexual predator Larry Nassar, the former MSU and USA Gymnastics doctor who was sentenced this week to serve between 40 and 175 years for his crimes against scores of girls and young women.

Many of Larry Nassar’s victims say his Ingham County sentencing was a significant step in their journey toward healing. And yet some, like Gwen Anderson, remind us that there’s still much more to be done.
