UNC shoots around on the USS Carl Vinson

The UNC-Chapel Hill men’s basketball team will face the Michigan State Spartans on Friday on the flight deck of the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson.

The game will be the first collegiate or professional basketball game ever played on an aircraft carrier.

On Thursday the Tar Heels had a chance to check out the court on the ship, shoot around and talk to members of the media.
