Next year, Caroline Buhr will be playing Division 1 basketball at the University of San Diego but for now she's enjoying a few more opportunities to play high school hoops with her little sister Camyrn.
"We're the last two in the house now and it's my last couple months here with her, every day is more special," Caroline, a Kingsmen says.
Penn is in Semi-State Saturday, looking to book their ticket to the state finals. The Buhr sisters are enjoying their time together.
"It's exciting--it's something we've never done before," Camyrn, a sophomore says. "We've gotten really close after the last few years with basketball just bringing us closer together."
There are some great benefits on the court to having that sister-sister connection.
"You have that telepathy stuff--that vibe," Caroline says. "You can help each other out that way."
"Yeah, and after practice and after the games, you can go home and talk about it and you can't do that with your parents. It's not the same," Camyrn adds.
So do the Buhr parents have to tell the sisters to stop talking about hoops at the dinner table.
"Ehhh--It's kind of the other way around," both sisters say at the same time.
"We're more the 'it's in the past, water under the bridge' and their more like, 'you need to work on this, this this,'" Caroline explains.
"Exactly," Camyrn says in agreement.
"We just look at each other like, you aren't listen either? OK," Caroline concludes.
So who wins in a 1-on-1 battle?
"Me," Caroline says.
"Probably," Camyrn concedes. "It's competitive though."
"I don't know if I should answer that question?" Kingsmen coach Kristi Kaniewski says with a big laugh. "They are both extremely competitive. I think I would have to give the edge to Caroline because she's the senior but they would both battle it out."
Of course, sometimes its hard to tell.
"We usually can't even finish a game because it gets too competitive--who ever cries first usually loses," Caroline says, pointing to Camyrn as the one who usually cries.
"Cries?" Camyrn fires back. "That's more like when I was little and short."
"Yeah, when you were little," Caroline says.
Now. Caroline and Camyrn are one win away from taking their Sister Act to the state finals.
"I think it would be really special," Caroline says. "I've never really felt this way. Usually your pretty worn down this far in the tournament but I don't feel that way--I just want to keep playing."
Penn faces Logansport in the 4A Semi-State Saturday at approximately 3pm at Crown Point.
