Obama speaks where Air Jordan once played

President Obama is speaking on hallowed ground today. The president is addressing UNC students at Carmichael Arena, which housed the UNC men's basketball team until 1986. That means Michael Jordan played here. "This is an arena with some serious hoops history," Obama said. "I just want to remind you right off the bat: I picked UNC to win it all" in the NCAA tournament. (USA Today)
