In an interview recorded before Haley’s basketball decision was made public, she and her twin sister, Hannah, spoke with Business of College Sports. The article highlights that Hannah will not be joining Haley on the team. A few excerpts from their conversation are provided below.
“I think going into deciding whether we were going to take our fifth year or not, we kind of were leaning on each other. We’ve always done everything together, so it kind of just made sense. I was just kind of ready to tie the shoes up, and I had different ambitions outside of basketball, but that was kind of my decision to step away.”
“I think ending it with Hanna and announcing that we were done and not going to take our fifth year, I felt—honestly, to be very transparent—a lot of pressure. There was nothing filling the love for the game, and I just truly was like, I know I’m going to regret it down the road if I don’t go back.”
