UK locker room memorabilia to be auctioned

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - UK basketball fans have a chance to take home some unique memorabilia this week.

Rupp Arena is auctioning off dozens of items in its storage this Friday.

The items up for auction include wood UK lockers, a UK trainer's bench, a lighted UK trophy case and dozens of basketball rims.

"If this was any other college, or whatever, it wouldn't be worth, just whatever. But it being the UK Men's basketball lockers, came right out of the locker room, and used by many many players over the last twenty five to thirty years, is a meaningful thing to have," said Roy Lancaster, the main auctioneer of the event.

There are several other items to bid on including old hockey benches from the Thoroughblades and Man-O-War hockey teams.

Items from the Opera House and concession equipment are also up for auction.

The auction is Friday, August 30 at 9 a.m. in the Cox Street parking lot behind Rupp Arena.
The memorabilia from the basketball locker rooms will go to the auction block at 10 a.m.
