Northwestern Mutual Auctioning Pieces Of UK Championship Floor
Fans can submit bids for pieces of the floor on which the Univ. of Kentucky won the '12 NCAA men's basketball championship beginning today at noon ET. Northwestern Mutual, which acquired the floor after the Final Four at the Superdome, is donating the 300 souvenir pieces "to raise money to fight pediatric cancer in Kentucky." The auction runs through noon next Thursday. Each 18-by-12-inch piece will be "numbered and signed" by UK coach John Calipari (Louisville COURIER-JOURNAL, 10/9).
