CHARLESTON, S.C. - Thursday gave all four teams involved with the Carrier Classic a chance to see the U.S.S. Yorktown and get a short 45 minutes to shoot around on the temporary court. Thad Matta, Buzz Williams, Jim Foster and Muffet McGraw and their teams were all in awe, not only of the set-up of the court itself but the meaning of playing in the Carrier Classic.
All four teams will take the court, outside in the elements, on Friday evening or not (women play at 4:00 pm (ET) and the men play at 7:00 pm) in front of a crowd of military members and families and a national audience on NBC Sports Network.
On Thursday each coach had a chance to talk to the media about what playing in the Classic means to them and their team and add any other stories that they wanted to offer up. We have a couple of clips of what went down on the deck of the Aircraft Carrier.
