Last night, UNC and the Michigan State Spartans made history in their home opener of the 2011-2012 NCAA season. Both teams took part in the Quicken Loans Carrier Classic, a college basketball game played on the deck of a U.S. Navy aircraft carrier dubbed the USS Carl Vinson. Nike and Jordan Brand created sneakers specifically designed for this game in the form of the Zoom Hyperdunk 2011 and Jordan 8.0. However, in addition to these Carrier Classic kicks, players on both sides rocked an abundance of Jordan heat. Specifically, MSU senior forward Draymond Green sported the “Cool Grey” Air Jordan 11 to coincide with the Spartans’ grey-based camouflage jerseys. As for the Tar Heels, John Henson and Dexter Strickland wore the Air Jordan 13 White/Neutral Grey-University Blue and the “Wolf Grey” Air Jordan 5, respectively. Check out these kicks, plus others, in our Kicks On Court: Carrier Classic Recap.
