UNC's Naval Weapons Systems class attracted basketball players

UNC-Chapel Hill’s Department of Naval Science exists to produce “highly qualified” officers who serve on ships, aircraft and submarines, or in the Marine Corps. For the spring semester in 2007, it also taught a half-dozen men’s basketball players. Enrollment records requested by The News & Observer show that the department had become a popular place for athletes. (Raleigh News & Observer)
