Sneak Peek: USS Carl Vinson Becomes Basketball Court for Carrier Classic

The USS Carl Vinson, a U.S. Navy Aircraft Carrier, will host a college basketball game between Michigan State and North Carolina Friday. Many people wondered what a basketball court on an aircraft would look like, and now we have our answer. North Carolina point guard Kendall Marshall tweeted a picture of the court, and I have to say, it looks pretty awesome. Keep in mind this is the same vessel that reportedly dumped Osama bin Laden’s body into the ocean.

Here’s a time lapse video showing the construction of the court:
