This Friday, Veterans Day 2022, college basketball returns to an aircraft carrier when Gonzaga meets Michigan State on the USS Abraham Lincoln in the San Diego harbor.

He explains how – over the course of a decade – this novel event transitioned from a crazy idea into one of the most distinctive college basketball games ever played.
