Governors Of Del., Md. Wager Crab Cakes Over Women’s Basketball Tournament Clash


Pride, bragging rights – and crab cakes – will be on the line as the Delaware and Maryland women’s basketball teams clash in the NCAA Tournament.
Delaware Governor John Carney and Maryland Governor Larry Hogan are wagering crab cakes on the outcome of the game this evening.

“Crab cakes and basketball—that’s what Maryland does,” Hogan said. “Our women’s basketball program is one of the best in the nation, and I’m confident that tonight’s game will be a slam dunk for our Terps. I want to thank Governor Carney for agreeing to this friendly wager, and I look forward to trying some inferior Delaware crab cakes after the big win.”

“Delaware is known for being the First State, and for our incredible beaches and delicious food—like the famous crab cakes at Woody’s in Dewey Beach,” Carney countered. “We’re really proud of our Fightin’ Blue Hens, and look forward to their success in the tournament. Thank you to Governor Hogan for this fun challenge, and for preparing some crab cakes to send over to Delaware. Let’s go, Blue Hens!”

The game tips off at 5:00 p.m. at Xfinity Center at the University of Maryland – after the Delaware Men’s team takes on Villanova in Pittsburgh this afternoon at about 2:45.
