LANSING--- Lansing Everett’s gym echoes with the sound of sneakers squeaking across the hardwood. The energy level was high, matching a fresh team, not one at the end of a grinding regular season.

Forward Trevor Manuel sweated profusely as he raced up and down the court, barking out defensive assignments and swatting shots. Manuel was working hard, under the banner of Everett’s most famous alumni, Earvin “Magic” Johnson.

Manuel competes like an athlete fighting for minutes, rather than a star player for a team that already won its conference championship.

  The East Lansing boy's basketball team are the hottest team in Mid-Michigan! Coming off a win over Lansing Catholic last night, they are now winners of nine of the last 10 games! Al chats with head coach Steve Finamore about what has "clicked" for the Trojans.  Al also discusses the tragedy of Hank Gathers 25 years ago to the day, and also dives into the Michigan and Michigan State basketball men's basketball teams. 


Snow may be on the ground, but that doesn't stop the MSU football team from getting in the gym to prepare for another college football season. Mark Dantonio and his team held winter conditioning today at the indoor practice facility. Check out footage from the session here. 

MSU men's basketball player Keenan Wetzel has been working on his film, "The Cager," for quite some time and finally was ready to reveal it to the public. 

The young director premiered the 25-minute short film in a private gala at NCG theatre in Lansing, MI. The movie stars his former MSU teammate, Delvon Roe. Wetzel wrote the script and began directing the film last summer.

WKAR's Al Martin made the trip to NCG to talk with Keenan, and others, about the remarkable accomplishment.

The MSU women's basketball team closed out the final home game of the season with a 60 to 50 win over Rutgers on Sunday afternoon. 

Michigan State seniors Becca Mills, Madison Williams, Anna Morrissey, Kendra Lumpkin and Kelsey Kuipers, were honored after the game.
