Colleges to Play Basketball Game on Aircraft Carrier

This idea is so ridiculous, it’s awesome.

North Carolina and Michigan State are closing in on a deal to play a men’s basketball game on an aircraft carrier next season.

Tar Heels Coach Roy Williams said on his radio show Monday night that the teams hope to play on Veterans Day in San Diego on a carrier.

Larry Gallo, a senior associate athletic director at UNC, said Tuesday that a contract isn’t in place yet. “We feel as though all systems are go, we’re just trying to finalize” details, he said. “But until you have a contract, a deal hasn’t been consummated.”

Gallo said discussions also involve the federal government and a promoter.

Michigan State Athletic Director Mark Hollis declined to comment, though he spoke earlier about playing a game on a carrier.

“It’s something that we continue to pursue with the Navy,” Hollis said. “From our perspective, it would be something where Americans could reach out to those who protect our borders and create a national celebration around it.”. . .

My guess here is it would be an outdoor game on whatever Carrier group is in San Diego on Veterans Day this year.  The novelty alone would make it worth tuning in.
