The school says the online auction will be held through Jan. 17 at und.cstvauctions.com/gallery.cfm . Among the items being auctioned are black uniforms worn by Irish starters during Notre Dame's 64-50 win over Kentucky on Nov. 29; the game ball from the win over Kentucky; four courtside seats to the game against Georgetown on Jan. 21; and part of the net and rim used during the second half of Notre Dame's upset of top-ranked Syracuse last year.

Proceeds will be presented to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. Christie is a longtime friend of Irish coach Mike Brey. Christie will attend the Notre Dame-Rutgers game in South Bend on Saturday, January 19 where he will be presented with a check for the proceeds according to the team website.
