Kinsey To Donate Uniform For Auction
Dec. 13, 2007
Former Gamecocks basketball player Tarence Kinsey will donate his Memphis Grizzlies game-worn uniform to be auctioned on the official South Carolina Auctions page on GamecocksOnline.com with the proceeds benefiting the Carolina Remembrance Fund.
The uniform includes an autographed jersey, game shorts and autographed shoes.
The university established the Carolina Remembrance Fund in honor and memory of the six Carolina students who died in the Ocean Isle fire Sunday, Oct. 28, 2007. Proceeds from the fund will honor these students through their sorority, Delta Delta Delta, or fraternity, Sigma Alpha Epsilon.
"This was a tragic event for these students and the university and I wanted to help out in anyway I could," Kinsey said.
Kinsey played for South Carolina from 2003 to 2006, scoring 1,204 points and earning All-SEC honors in 2006. He was also named a Gamecock Great as part of the 100 Years of Gamecock Basketball celebration.
