Fighting Illini basketball fans will have the opportunity to bid for the men's and women's uniforms worn during their 2010 "Pink" games. Illinois' online auction on fightingillini.com will feature 10 jerseys, 14 pairs of shorts and two pairs of shoes, beginning Monday, March 22. Portions of the proceeds from the auction will benefit the Kay Yow/WBCA Cancer Fund and Coaches vs. Cancer.

"The `Pink' games have done a great job nationally of creating cancer awareness," head coach Bruce Weber said. "Now we can use this auction to contribute financially to the cause. I think our fans will be excited about having the opportunity to purchase this memorabilia."
