College Basketball: Setup for the Michigan State-North Carolina Carrier Classic

Coming to a naval vessel near you, 11.11.11.

In preparation for what is being dubbed "The Carrier Classic," the flight deck of the USS Carl Vinson is being transformed from an active runway to a makeshift basketball arena.

From the port in San Diego where the carrier is docked to across the coast at Chapel Hill, eager college hoops fans everywhere are anxiously anticipating Friday's historic game.

As the event gets closer, all parties to the Carrier Classic have been tweeting, videotaping and snapping photographs of the ship's exciting transformation.
