Delaware, Maryland governors issue friendly wager on tourney

The event, a three-day tournament where supremacy in boys high school basketball between the states will be determined, pits 24 teams from Delaware and Maryland against each other for a year of bragging rights.
On the line in the wager is a savory Delaware Peach Pie from Markell and a Smith Island Cake, the Maryland state dessert, from O’Malley.
“Friendly — but fierce — competition is a great way to encourage active lifestyles and good sportsmanship,” Markell said. “This should be an exciting community event and I hope our wager is a fun way to show our young athletes that we are proud of them.”
“Interscholastic sports bring not only family, but neighbors and friendly rivals together,” O’Malley said. “This annual tournament presents a wonderful opportunity to enjoy basketball over the holiday season, with our fellow residents on the Eastern Shore. To further enhance excitement around this event, I’m happy to put Maryland’s famous dessert on the line with Governor Markell.”
From Dec. 28 to 30, the Civic Center will run two games simultaneously from 2 to 8 p.m. Dover, Caesar Rodney and Polytech high schools all will be participating in the tournament.
