During halftime of the Kentucky vs. Mississippi State basketball game back in February, the 1996 National Championship basketball team was recognized and given special rings for their accomplishments. Four months later, it appears that former UK star Walter McCarty put both the original NCAA National Championship ring and the Kentucky ring up for sale on Ebay.
After this news started to spread, McCarty reportedly said that it was a “misunderstanding” with a family member.
Spoke with @waltermccarty today, who is working diligently to have the rings returned. Misunderstanding with family member. @KySportsRadio

The bidding was supposed to end in 27 days, but it appears that the bidding ended this morning at 8:17 AM. Hopefully that means he’s taking them down.
The original ring is currently sitting at $3,400 while the newer one that the school purchased is listed at $5,200.
We’re not really sure what exactly is going on within the McC...
