NEW YORK — Bob Knight is selling his championship basketball rings and some Olympic items.

A collection of the former coach’s memorabilia will be auctioned by Steiner Sports Memorabilia. It’s part of a sale that features the jersey Yankees pitcher Don Larsen wore while pitching a perfect game in the World Series.

The auction runs through Dec. 5 and will feature Knight’s rings from his three NCAA championship teams at Indiana — the undefeated 1976 season and the ones from 1981 and 1987.

The company will also sell a sports coat and a warmup jacket given to Knight as coach of the gold-medal winning U.S. Olympic team in 1984.

Knight set a Division I record, which has since been surpassed, with 902 wins at Army, Indiana and Texas Tech.
