    I have been searching the internet to purchase two regulation basketballs for a pair of high school Coaches vs. Cancer games in January. I can find the women's size, but nothing for men is turning up. Being that most men's college team's participate in this fundraiser for the fight against cancer, I would guess at one time they used a pink ball for one of their games. So if anyone could point me in the right direction where I might be able to find a Wilson or Spalding regulation pink men's indoor basketball, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Thank you for your reply. Cost really isn't the issue, finding the correct size is. The 28.5 size you have linked to is the women's size ball, which we do need, but the problem is finding the men's version which would be 29.5 in size.

    Unfortunately that would never fly with school officials. Paint would surely come off during play and being that this school just put down a new floor a year ago the answer would definitely be a no.

    LaLore I have been trying to make contact with Wilson but no online reps are available. Also contacted Nike and when I inquired about a pink men's indoor ball, the rep tried to sell me pink basketball shoes.

    A Chinese seller with connections from the US, can ship the ball, but again, you are looking for the men's ball as well. The price you see in RMB (Chinese currency) is to send it to here, in addition to the ball, so if this is staying in the US, I am assuming the price can be reduced. The current conversion in price $62.89, which is less than that other site another member posted earlier.

    I don't believe anyone has a pink basketball in the men's size. The men wear pink sneakers, headbands, etc and use the women's pink basketball. That's the way I've seen it done.
