Heidi Hoos! When the BasketCases bought their tickets for Maryland's game at UVA today, little did we know that we were also going to be treated to a Mystics flashback. But we learned this morning from reading the Daily Progress, Charlottesville's newspaper of record, that UVA will celebrate National Girls and Women in Sports Day at John Paul Jones Arena this afternoon by honoring ten sets of female siblings who have played for the Cavs, including the Mystics' very own Heidi Burge and her identical twin, Heather. The Burge twins starred for UVA in the '90s. They were also the subject of the very entertaining (if it's late at night and you're channel surfing and can't find anything else to watch) Disney movie Double Teamed. Heidi played for the Mystics during their inaugural season, in which the team went an unforgettable 3-27. Heather, meanwhile, played for the Sacramento Monarchs.
