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.

North Carolina point guard Kendall Marshall tweeted a picture of the court, and I have to say, it looks pretty awesome.
