Congressman Denver Riggleman presented Congressman Jodey Arrington with a University of Virginia flag on Facebook live Monday afternoon to resolve their friendly wager over the NCAA Men's Basketball Championship.  Riggleman's Alma Mater, the University of Virginia, defeated Congressman Arrington's Texas Tech Red Raiders to win the NCAA Basketball Championship in April.

The Congressman made a friendly bet that over the outcome of the championship game.  The losing member would fly the winning teams flag in their office for 30 days and record a video congratulating them.

"I want to thank Congressman Jodey Arrington for being such a good sport and accepting the University of Virginia flag we gave him this afternoon," said Congressman Riggleman.  "I'm so proud of Coach Bennet and the UVA team."
