Michigan State Looking To Play Basketball Game At Pearl Harbor

Michigan State University athletic director Mark Hollis wants the Spartans to play a basketball game at Pearl Harbor, according to MLive's Diamond Leung, who spoke with Hollis on Thursday.

The Spartans already made history in 2011, along with North Carolina, as the two teams played a game aboard the USS Carl Vinson in November. It was the first organized basketball game to be played on an aircraft carrier. Now, Hollis has his eyes set on Hawaii, and could work to make his wish become a reality, as he told Leung:

"I think there are some great locations, and ESPN is such a good partner that we would be very open to participating to new and unique things. I think playing a game out at Pearl Harbor is something that would be intriguing."

Hollis also mentioned on Thursday that it is unlikely the Spartans will play in the 2013 Carrier Classic, which will host eight teams and involve multiple ships. The Spartans lost last year's event, falling to the Tar Heels, 67-55.
