"For sure," Casey said. "If  something happens to her, I'm always there."

"... she knows I can stick up for myself," Mackenzie added,

Casey, an 18-year-old, 6-foot-1 junior, averaged 10-points a game this year for a total of 309 points, while younger sister, Mackenzie, 16, 5-foot-11 sophomore, averaged 7.6 points a game for 206 total.

 "We've been playing since we were four," Casey said.

And basketball runs in the bloodline. Their mother, Michelle, played at Mosley High School in Lynn Haven.

"Mom always said I would really love to see my girls grow up to be basketball players," Casey said. "We've loved it our whole lives ... our dad (Jeff), too. He influenced us as well."

Casey recalls getting their first basketball goal at age 3 — a Michael Jordan goal — and dribbling the ball on her grandma's porch.
