LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - Major New Mexico State University fans could bring some of the school’s history home with them as the university is auctioning off the old gym floor.

The Las Cruces Sun-News reports (https://bit.ly/2dIsdc4 ) that the Pan Am Basketball Floor, as it’s called on the auction site Public Surplus, went out to bid on Sept. 29 and bidding continues through Thursday night.

Someone has made a bid of $1,000 but NMSU Athletics Director Mario Moccia says the university has a $5,000 asking price.

The portable parquet floor up for auction was named in honor of Lou Henson, the Aggies’ National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame coach and was the court where NMSU won its first Western Athletic Conference men’s basketball tournament title on March 10, 2007.
