NBC Sports will air the women’s game of the Carrier Classic basketball doubleheader on the aircraft carrier Yorktown Nov. 9 live instead of later in the evening.
Organizer Morale Entertainment Foundation originally announced the women’s game, which starts just after 4 p.m. on the vintage warship’s flight deck, would air at 11 p.m. while the men’s game would air live at 7 p.m. They decided to air both games live, Mike Whalen, a co-director for Morale Entertainment, said today.
The women’s game will pit Ohio State against national runner-up Notre Dame. The men’s match-up includes Ohio State and Marquette.
