Haley and Hanna Cavinder made many headlines last season for their basketball play at Miami and the drama that was kicked up over NCAA violations surrounding their NIL recruitment.

After helping lead the Miami Hurricanes women’s basketball team to the first Elite Eight in program history, the twins elected to step away from the game of basketball, saying that they would forgo their fifth year of eligibility.

“We would like to thank our teammates and coaches for bringing us in as family and being part of a historic season,” the twins said in a statement in April. “With that being said, Hanna and I have decided to not take our fifth year and start a new chapter in our lives. The U will always be home and we are forever proud to be Hurricanes.”

Since then they’ve announced that they will be joining WWE to begin careers in the professional wrestling world.

Presumably, a big part of the reason they’re not returning to college basketball is over the NCAA investigation and sanctions involved in their recruitment.

Now that they’re moving on from the world of college sports, they decided to take one parting shot at the NCAA. In a new TikTok video, they poke fun at the NCAA and the control it has over the lives of college athletes.

“Us calling the NCAA to see if we are allowed to graduate,” read the caption of a video that showed the duo in white dresses handing a phone to one another.

The NCAA probably won’t like that, but there isn’t much they can do to the twins now that they’ve graduated and won’t be playing college basketball.
