The mother of Louisville forward Chane Behanan said Wednesday that the junior's 2012 Final Four ring posted on an online auction site was stolen.
Heaven Warren told the Associated Press that she was awaiting receipt of Behanan's ring from Grey Flannel Auctions, which stopped bidding on the ring Wednesday after she told the website it had been stolen.
The Westhampton, N.Y., company had no comment when contacted by the AP.
''This is not Chane's doing. ... I would just like to find out how someone got this ring (and) I would like to post their name,'' Warren said.
The player's mother said she has talked with Louisville coach Rick Pitino and the school's compliance department about the matter. Basketball spokesman Kenny Klein said the school was looking into the situation.
Before last season Louisville players were given personalized light gold rings featuring a large diamond centered in ruby red and surrounded by a circle of smaller diamonds for playing in the Final Four.
