    The Michigan State-North Carolina basketball game on an aircraft carrier on San Diego Bay on Veterans Day will be one tough ticket.

    If you're Michael Jordan or Magic Johnson, no problem. If you're among the approximately 4,000 military personnel selected, come on board. If you're real tight with either school, you might have a fighting chance.

    Otherwise, a seat in front of a TV is going to be the only way to see the first NCAA hoops game to be played on a flat top.

    Organizer Mike Whalen says tickets won't be sold to the public. They'll be free to those lucky enough to be chosen, and scalpers will be out of luck. Whalen said ticket holders' names will be printed on the front, and ID must match.
