The 24 turnstiles used to mark attendance at basketball games and other events are being auctioned through the Indiana University Surplus Stores. Bids start at $500, and proceeds go to the Surplus Stores and the university’s athletic department. The first sale ends Thursday.

The Herald-Times (http://bit.ly/1oJhJN1 ) reports the turnstiles were first used at football games at Memorial Stadium before being moved to Assembly Hall when it opened in 1971. The red-and-chrome turnstiles remained at the fieldhouse until 2014.

University-owned property is disposed of through the Surplus Stores.
