Detroit Collegiate Prep at Northwestern has given its girls’ basketball opposition double trouble this season in the form of senior twins Icesis and Iresis Chandler-Poole, the Detroit Public School League Proud Strong Learners of the Week.
The Lady Colts entered the Big D girls’ tournament with a 9-0 league record after going undefeated for the second year in a row in division play. The capper was a 54-28 victory against previously-unbeaten CMA as both twins posted double-doubles. Icesis led all players with 24 points and 15 rebounds, while Iresis delivered 15 points and 14 rebounds.
For the season, Icesis, a 6-0 guard-forward, is averaging 11 points and 10 rebounds and Iresis, a 6-0 forward-center, is averaging nine points and nine rebounds.
Both twins have an above 3.5 grade point average and are looking at numerous collegiate offers.
