After the Cavinder twins took a year off from women’s college basketball, the sisters are returning to Miami for their final year of eligibility.

Haley Cavinder initially entered the transfer portal and committed to play next season at TCU. But after Hanna Cavinder announced that she would play at Miami next season, Haley said she was returning to Coral Gables as well.

“Given the news yesterday that my sister was returning to play ball at Miami and after careful consideration and thought, I’ve decided to return to the University of Miami and play with Hanna for our final and 5th year,” Haley Cavinder posted on social media.

“There is nothing more important than family and the bond I share with my twin sister,” she added. “Being presented with the opportunity to play together one more time is something I cannot pass up. I am excited for this upcoming season and can’t wait to play at the U.”

The Cavinder twins, both guards, last played for the Hurricanes in the 2022-23 season. Haley averaged 12.2 points, 4.9 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game while shooting 40% on 3-pointers. Hanna compiled 3.8 points per game with 1.3 rebounds and 1.6 assists.

That was their lone season at Miami, and the Hurricanes advanced to the Elite Eight of the NCAA women’s tournament, where they lost to eventual national champion LSU.

After that season, the Cavinders left Miami, apparently looking to capitalize on their TikTok popularity (they have 4.5 million followers) and NIL success with companies including Boost Mobile, Champs Sports, Crocs and Venmo.

Their NIL deal with WWE drew the most attention. The sisters appeared at many WWE events, posing with the promotion’s star performers. It was never clear whether they were preparing for careers in the wrestling ring, but that did not develop.

Prior to playing at Miami, the Cavinder sisters played three seasons at Fresno State. Haley averaged 18.4 points, 8.1 rebounds and 4.4 assists, while Hanna averaged 15.7 points, 3.3 rebounds and 3.8 steals.
