Governors go double or nothing on NCAA final

Statement issued Monday by the Indiana governor's office:

INDIANAPOLIS (April 4, 2011) – It’s double or nothing for tonight’s NCAA championship game between the Butler Bulldogs and the University of Connecticut Huskies – at least when it comes to chocolate.

After the University of Notre Dame’s defeat of the UConn Huskies in Sunday night’s NCAA Women’s Final Four semifinal in Indianapolis, Connecticut Governor Dannel P. Malloy has come back for more, asking Governor Mitch Daniels to go double or nothing on their friendly wager, and Daniels agreed.

Daniels won a basket of UConn-themed Munson’s Chocolate from Malloy as a result of the Notre Dame victory. Indiana had “wagered” a selection of gourmet chocolates from South Bend Chocolate Company.
