Rising basketball stars Enya and Anna Maguire are going to enjoy a sister act experience at the highest level of US college basketball when they team up at Houston Baptist University.

HBU Huskies compete in Division One of the NCAA Championship in the States and 19-year-old Enya has just signed up to play alongside 22-year-old Irish international Anna.

"It's a dream come true to be playing Division One basketball. Ever since Anna got the chance, I've been determined to get there as well," said Enya.

"I had a couple of options but I went for the Huskies because it will be great to play alongside Anna for a couple of years."
