The SU men's basketball team will be in the national spotlight this weekend aboard the retired USS Midway aircraft carrier. The Orange will take on San Diego State in the "Battle on the Midway" on Sunday. Brad Vivacqua is in San Diego and has more.
SAN DIEGO, CA -- In a couple days, the SU basketball team will be playing its first regular season game on a temporary court built on the flight deck of the USS Midway.
The game, which pits the #9 Orange and 20th ranked Aztecs, is being played in conjunction with Veterans Day Weekend.
Only about 5,400 fans are expected to be on board the massive 1,000-foot ship to watch the game on a court that took about 10 days to install.
The game, which will take place Sunday at 4 p.m. Eastern, was moved because of the chance of rain expected in San Diego tonight. Even with clear skies and a slight wind Sunday, it should be fun for Orange fans to watch the ‘Cuse compete in a regulation game outdoors.
Throughout the weekend, YNN will have much more on the game, and the history behind the former aircraft carrier, which is now a museum on San Diego Bay.
