They have opponents seeing double this season.

Pink Jones leads the Henderson State women's basketball team in scoring. Her twin sister, Blu, is a consistent contributor, as well.

"We get made fun of for that quite a bit," Reddies Head Coach Jill Thomas said. "I know on the road last year, especially when they were freshmen, a lot of people referred to them as, which crayon are you?"

"We get that a lot," Pink said.

They said their given names, Jameisha and Janeisha, sound too similar. So they picked new nicknames.

"Pink and blue originally were our favorite colors when we were little," Pink said. "We just wore pink and blue so we would be distinguished, and then it just kind of stuck."
