The grand experiment -- playing basketball on the deck of an aircraft carrier, floating in water in less than ideal conditions...
The Notre Dame women's basketball team traveled to Mount Pleasant, SC to play in the 2nd Annual Carrier Classic "outside" on the deck of the USS Yorktown -- and beat Ohio State 57 - 51.
The Irish were led by Natalie Achonwa's 17 points and 10 rebounds. ND frosh Jewell Loyd -- in her college debut --- grabbed 12 rebounds, including 4 on the offensive end.
