Earlier this year, she and twin sister Hanna were all set to retire from the game, gearing up to embark on a new career with the WWE.

Now, Haley is aiming for a comeback in the 2024-25 season, though her future at Miami is uncertain since she's entered the transfer portal.

What makes this even more surprising is that her twin sister, Hanna, won't be joining her on the court this time. The dynamic duo has been lighting up college basketball for four seasons, but now, it's solo time for Haley.

Still, Hanna's not sitting this one out entirely. She's showing her support for her sister with a special message on Instagram saying, "So proud of you twin."

While Hanna is ready to bid farewell to basketball, Haley, who earned second-team All-ACC honors with averages of 12.2 points and 4.9 rebounds per game, is exploring new opportunities in the transfer portal.

While Haley and Hanna Cavinder are known to be inseparable, Hanna seems to be thrilled not to be playing basketball with her twin again.

In a viral TikTok video posted on Friday, Hanna happily and purposefully threw a missed layup shot with the message: "how life feels now that my sister decided to play basketball again & I don't have to see the 2 points comments anymore."

Hanna, who averaged 3.8 points per game off the bench for Miami last season, appeared to be responding to a TikTok user comment that read, "Retired after averaging 2 points."

While it will be interesting to see the dynamic of the Cavinder twins' social media change with Haley going back to school, fans can be sure the two will continue to be successful influencers in the meantime.
