WASHINGTON -- ABC talk show host Jimmy Kimmel squared off against Texas Sen. Ted Cruz Saturday night in a 1-on-1 basketball game to benefit two charities.
According to several media reports, Cruz defeated Kimmel 11-9 in the "Blobfish Basketball Classic" held at Texas Southern University’s Health and Physical Education Arena in Houston.
Cruz was raising money for Generation One Texas, an anti-poverty organization. Kimmel chose the Texas Children’s Hospital.
Both charities received $10,000 each from Kimmel and Cruz. Highlights from the game will debut on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" on Monday night.
