Dad & daughter duo on the court - Mary Kate puts in the time for the crime

Published: Friday, January 31, 2014 at 12:56 PM.

"I expect her to make the shots. I expect her get the rebounds. I expect her to do that stuff. I probably don't praise her enough for what she does."

For her part Mary Kate sees the advantages and disadvantages of the relationship.

"I hear about it when we come home," she said. "If I mess up big time, I'm going to hear about it."

Her mother Patsy even gets in on the action.

"She's on the fence, but she will call me out if I mess up."

But pros readily outweigh the cons.

"I love it because I know his style and I think it's important to know a coach’s style," she said. "I know what dad expects of us and I can carry that out on the court as well. I can voice it to the other girls on the team, whereas they wouldn't understand it as much as I would."
