Watch awesome video of how the Navy turned an aircraft carrier into a basketball court

Former Kansas Jayhawks men’s basketball coach Roy Williams leads the North Carolina Tar Heels against Michigan State tonight aboard the U.S.S. Carl Vinson aircraft carrier docked in San Diego. OK, now that the slight local connection is out of the way, waste some of your Friday afternoon watching this time-lapse video of the eight-day transformation of the carrier’s flight deck. It’s pretty awesome. The game, which is on the ship from which Osama bin Laden was buried at sea, is on ESPN at 6 p.m., and noted basketball enthusiast President Obama will be there.
