BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Hoosier fans, listen up. (Or if you know somebody who is one.)

If you've ever wanted to own a piece of IU history, now is your chance. The school is auctioning off a turnstile from Assembly Hall.

It was used from 1971-2014 and saw three NCAA Champions -- 1976, 1981 and 1987.

The turnstile is one of 24 remaining in existence from IU's championship years. Anybody who buys it must pick it up in Bloomington.
