Basketball Game On The Deck Of The USS Bataan Presents Unique Challenges
Published November 6, 2012
PLAYING ABROAD: In Detroit, Matt Charboneau notes for most of the Michigan State men's basketball players and coaches, this week's trip to Ramstein Air Base in Germany "for the Armed Forces Classic represents more than just playing a game” against UConn. MSU coach Tom Izzo thought last season's Carrier Classic game against North Carolina on the flight deck of USS Carl Vinson “made a huge impact on his players, and hopes being around the air base is what this year's team takes from the event.” MSU players in the Carrier Classic last season “wore camouflage uniforms, and will wear similar ones Friday.” MSU G Russell Byrd said, "It's a little different this time. We are going over there to try and get a win and get the season started off right. ... The last time was to enjoy the experience" (DETROIT NEWS, 11/6).
