Not only do Emma and Mary Lee bond and work together on the court as teammates, they have the honor of this at home as sisters.  Emma and Mary Lee agree that being sisters on the court together for the High School and their Spring AAU team(North Georgia Titans) has given them a edge.  Mary Lee stated “We are always together at practices and games that I can read how Emma is going to cut the coverage by the opposing defense.  This allows Emma to better anticipate the pass,”  and “I am definitely harder on Emma as a sister than I am on my other teammates.”
