Haley and Hanna Cavinder are hitting back at the many haters they have obtained since they were thrust into the national spot light.
The 5-foot-6 guards, who boast 4 million TikTok followers and about a million Instagram followers between them, have notched some of the most lucrative deals since the NCAA launched its new name, image and likeness rules.
“When NIL did pass, it surprised a lot of people that Hanna and I and other female athletes were leading the way,” Haley told The Post. “I think it shows that female athletes have as much power as male athletes and NIL has been the driving force.”
Darren Heitner, an attorney who works with the twins, confirmed that they’ve already earned more than $1 million. With fame and money comes a ton of haters, though.
“A lot of people like to let us know about it,” Haley said of their social-media popularity. “But we’ll see them on the court.”
“People forget that before COVID happened, and before we blew up on TikTok, we were just basketball players trying to get a college scholarship together and achieve our goals,” she continued. “Basketball has always been the main thing.”
Last season, the identical twins put up impressive numbers for the Fresno State women’s basketball team. Haley led the team in rebounds, assists and points, with 19.8 per game, while Hanna was second on the team in all categories and averaged 14.5 points per game.
