Sibling rivalry extends on and off the court for two Angelina Lady Roadrunners

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

Carlisha and Carlette Wyatt have been confusing referees, teammates and opposing players all season long. No they aren't seeing double, but the Roadrunners happen to have twins on this years roster.  Head Coach Byron Coleman admits they are inseparable like you would expect sisters to be.

"They definitely fight when they get a chance they can be competitive towards each other on and off the court," said Coleman.  "They are definitely always together, they are everything in the sense of the word twins."

In speaking with the girls it is obvious that they like to compete in everything. Whether it be basketball, academics or even just a video game at home. Life is a competition for these two.    

"It's cool being twins, we have our moments where we like to fight, but other than that she is like my best friend," said Carlisha. "But we are very competitive and I don't like losing. Every time I lose I pitch a fit."

Carlette admits Carlisha beats her on the court, but Carlette likes to brag about off the court activities.

"I beat her all the time in video games," said Carlette. "But as far as grades, yeah, I win that too."

The Wyatt's are sophomores, meaning after this season they will have to move on to a larger university. The girls say they hope to stay together, just like they have been since birth.

"We have a connection, so playing together is just easier," said Carlette. "We know what each other is going to do before anyone else."

So the possibility of having to split up is not something they want to deal with.

"We want to move to the next school together," said Carlisha.  "It would be great, I would love it, and if not, I would have to call her every single day."

With just six games guaranteed left together the Wyatt's are taking every advantage of their time on the floor, while also pushing towards the post season for Angelina.
