Carrier Classic on USS Yorktown Still on For 2013, Organizers Say

College basketball games on aircraft carriers were a disaster over the weekend, with one game (Ohio State vs. Marquette) being cancelled entirely due to condensation on the court, another halted at halftime for the same reason (Georgetown vs. Florida) and another delayed due to high winds (Syracuse vs. San Diego St.).

So scrap the idea, right?

Not so fast. Organizers of the 2013 Carrier Classic told Live 5 TV in South Carolina that next year’s event is still on:

Morale Entertainment President Mike Whalen said Monday his group and the Patriots Point Development Authority have agreed to hold the event again next year …

Whalen says organizers believe they have an engineering solution to correct the condensation issue. He’s heard from about 10 schools interested in taking part next year.

What’s the over/under on organizers being informed that this simply isn’t happening? A week? Please give me the under. Move it indoors to a military base. [Live 5]
