FRANKFORT — Attorney General Jack Conway is betting Connecticut Attorney General George Jepsen that the Lady Cardinals will best the the University of Connecticut during Tuesday night’s NCAA women’s championship game.
Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette already owes Conway a basket of gourmet Michigan goodies after the University of Louisville men’s team defeated Michigan in Monday night’s NCAA championship game. If the Lady Cards lose to the Connecticut Huskies, Conway will owe Jepsen a Kentucky ham. Jespen bet Conway a selection of Connecticut wines.
Conway was already preparing Tuesday for his selection of wines. Conway’s wife, Elizabeth, is a University of Louisville graduate.
“I look forward to sampling the Connecticut spirits with my snacks that will soon be arriving from Michigan,” Conway said.
Jepsen, however, said the University of Louisville is going to need more than just momentum from the men’s championship game to get past the storied Connecticut women’s basketball team.
“There’s no question that the Cardinals are flying high after taking the men’s national championship against Michigan last night,” Jepsen said. “But the Louisville women are going to need more than wings and prayers to stop Breanna Stewart and keep the UConn Huskies from winning their eighth national title.”
