Video: How To Play Basketball On An Aircraft Carrier

After seeing the camouflage jerseys for this Friday’s Carrier Classic between North Carolina and Michigan State, I’m pretty sure everyone is even more psyched for the game. But wait – how do you play basketball on the flight deck of an aircraft carrier? I mean, it has to be a little different than the Dean Dome or the Breslin Center. Thankfully, John Brenkus of ESPN’s Sports Science breaks it down for us.

Also, for those interested, check out this cool time lapse of the construction of the court and bleachers aboard the USS Carl Vinson.

    Yo this is dope. Until today, i had no idea they were actually playing on the Carrier itself.
    How could anyone not want to stay in college and play after seeing things like this. Where else woudl you get this kinda experience? I think the WNBA and the PHX suns have played outside games.

    This is like something out of a video game. Crazy cool! We need more special venue outdoor games like this.
