North Carolina and Michigan State to play on a special Aircraft Carrier

Published on June 17, 2011 by Scott Shirley   ·   1 Comment

We all knew that North Carolina and Michigan State where going to play a basketball game on an aircraft carrier. Today we found out that the game will be played on a very special aircraft carrier. The game will be played on the USS Carl Vinson according to the AP. The USS Carl Vinson was the aircraft carrier that carried Osama bin Laden’s body to a burial at sea.

The game between North Carolina and Michigan will be played on Veterans Day, November 11. North Carolina will likely be the number one team in the nation with Harrison Barnes, Tyler Zeller, John Henson, and Kendall Marshall all returning, while Michigan State is coming off a down season and don’t really have any stars returning. This is a rematch of the 2009 National Championship in which North Carolina blew out Michigan State.

I can’t wait to watch this game I think it will be really neat to watch.

More from the Associated Press’s story about the game.
