College basketball teams across the United States are honoring veterans on Veterans Day for the opening night of the season in America.

The Armed Forces Classic and the Veterans Classic will both take place on Friday and some of the teams will be sporting some patriotic jerseys in dedication to the veterans for their service and sacrifice.

Ohio State may not be wearing special jerseys for the occasion, but LeBron James made sure they will be representing the armed forces on the hardwood Friday.

Arizona will face off against Michigan State in the first game of the Armed Forces Classic in Honolulu, Hawaii followed by a matchup between Indiana and Kansas.

Vanderbilt and Marquette will play in the first game of the Veterans Classic in Annapolis, Maryland followed by a game between Ohio State and Navy.

Happy Veteran’s Day to all the veterans out there. And welcome back college basketball.
