On the latest episode of their podcast ‘Twin Talk’, Haley and Hanna Cavinder said that their decision to leave the women’s college basketball world wasn’t easy.

The 22-year-old twin sisters were split on whether or not to return to the University of Miami right after helping the Hurricanes reach the Elite Eight for the first time in history.

But after that success, it appears that the girls did not see eye-to-eye on what to do in the future.

‘We got in a fight, if you really want to know the tea, and I was like “Hanna, I’m going back,” and she was like, “I’m not going back, I’m not doing it anymore,”‘ Haley said.

‘We made it to the Elite 8, that was Hanna and I’s goal. Hanna didn’t want to play, so she made me quit basketball.’

As for why she wanted to leave the women’s college basketball world – and the twins’ lucrative NIL deal – Hanna said that the negative attention they got drove her away. 

‘Because the two point comments that are still going on in the two minutes, I was done,’ she said.

‘Besides that as a college athlete you miss so much of your family, your life,’ Haley continued. ‘… We wanted to just play four years and we’ve always dreamed of starting our businesses and starting a company and take this route — so it was like ok whatever people gotta say, whatever they gotta say, do what you want to do.’

Hanna also added that burnout affected her playing and her personal life. 

‘I’m not gonna do something that I’m not going to 100 percent of my all to. If I chose to go back that wouldn’t be right, I wouldn’t be fully satisfied at who I am.’

Haley said that it took her about a month before making her final decision – while Hanna was determined to make sure they stopped playing basketball. 

‘The deciding factor, I went on so many ‘hot girl walks’ and I was like, somebody make this decision for me because it’s giving me so much anxiety.’

These days, the Cavinder’s are still creating plenty of content and keeping their lives busy and active – including through the WWE.

But they’ve still received plenty of comments from people saying that they should have stayed at Miami.

‘Everyone’s going to be like, “Oh my gosh, you should’ve taken your fifth year,” but when we were playing basketball you were hating on us.

‘You can’t please anyone and the opinions of others — we’re not going to ever rely a decision on.’
