Basketball team features 4 sets of twins

Teams playing Taylor Allderdice High School in Pittsburgh could be forgiven for wondering whether the school has perfected clone technology. After all, there are four sets of twins on the Allderdice basketball team.

The "twinsanity" is made up of identical twins Javaughn and Davaughn Moultrie, Timmy and Jimmy Jackson, and Kenny and Keith Robinson, plus fraternal twins Juwan and Jalen Ledbetter.

"It's hard for me because sometimes I really don't know which kid to yell at," coach Buddy Valinsky joked to WTAE.

The twins on the court aren't just a novelty, though -- they're having fun while playing some serious basketball. The team is off to a 10-3 start, according to USA Today.

"When we're on the court, it's a twin thing. I mean, we know our strengths, each other's strengths, and it's just fun," said player Javaughn Moultrie.

"We all can bond, come together. We know each other, we play with each other, we challenge each other. We just love to be out there on the floor together," said Moultrie's teammate and brother, Davaughn Moultrie.
