FRANKFORT – Gov. Steve Beshear gave a politically safe answer Monday when asked who will win Friday night’s much-anticipated NCAA tournament game in Indianapolis between the University of Kentucky and the University of Louisville.
"I'm confident that a Kentucky team will win," said Beshear, who holds a bachelor’s degree and law degree from UK.
Beshear said he has watched the teams' earlier games on TV and is excited that "Kentucky is once again at the epicenter of men’s college basketball."
He noted that U of L won the national championship last year and UK the previous year.
