Every guy fantasizes about twins but the twins that every male coach in America is dreaming about aren’t females like this but two brothers that can ball like this

The Harrison Twins Sweepstakes ended yesterday in the gym of Travis High School in Richmond, TX a little after 4PM CST.  ESPN and other media outlets had all their cameras on Andrew & Aaron Harrison, accompanied by Mom and Dad, as they sat at a press conference table in front of students and cheerleaders. After minutes of uncomfortable silence, the twins, confirmed that John Calipari needs to play the lotto and that that he will be coaching the best twin duo in the history of basketball.

Not that Calipari was in any danger of getting a pink slip but thankfully for the University of Kentucky they wont have a could of should of story like UCLA did back in 1996 when the Collins twins were going to pick the Bruins until they fired coach Jim Harrick.  But the supposed reasoning for the firing was a recruiting dinner with the Collins twins and Earl Watson.  The Collins twins managed to last in the NBA without doing anything significant a lot longer than anyone would ever expect but I’m not expecting to say the same about the future Wildcats and probably NBA all-stars from Texas.

Ballislife will be at the majority of the senior games of the Twins and providing you with exclusive coverage of their quest for a state championship before joining the Big Blue Madness.


In honor of the Harrison Twins and Wildcats let’s look back at some of the best guards in UK history
