Governor Steve Beshear and Michigan Governor Rick Snyder are wagering on their home teams in tonight’s Sweet 16 NCAA tournament basketball game.   

Gov. Beshear bet a Kentucky country ham that the University of Louisville Cardinals will win; Gov. Snyder offered Grand Traverse Pie Company cherry pies for a Michigan State Spartan victory.

“The Cardinals are clicking at the right time, and they’re playing their best ball of the season,” said Gov. Beshear.  “It will be a real treat to see these legendary coaches, Rick Pitino and Tom Izzo, go head-to-head, but I think the Cards will get the best of Sparty.  Those Michigan pies will be a mighty tasty snack for the Elite Eight game.”

“Rick Pitino and Tom Izzo are some of the very best coaches the NCAA has seen,” said Gov. Snyder. “Under Izzo’s leadership, the Spartans have achieved victory after victory. The Cardinals will bring a tough game, but I look forward to seeing yet another Spartan victory tonight. Go State!”
