Athletes of the Week: Matt & Josh Lindsay

NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - At North Myrtle Beach, the Chief basketball team is learning that two is better than one.  Twin brothers Matt and Josh Lindsay have teamed up to help lead the squad to a fast start in 2011.

"We look for each other on the court and pass each other the ball, it's a pretty amazing feeling to have a twin brother play with you," said Josh.

While Matt added, "We look for each other in the game when we're open, we get each other the ball because we shoot well."

The sophomores both bring different skill sets to the team, but good luck asking either who's the better player.

"On the court I just tell people I'm the better one, I usually play more than he does," says Matt.

Josh disagrees though, saying, "I can shoot better than he can, I get told that all the time, but he doesn't believe me."

Brotherly love aside, the Lindsay twins both will be cornerstones for this North Myrtle Beach program for the next three years.  Something first year head coach Frank Moorhead is very excited about.

"There's no selfishness to either one of them, they're very coachable.  If they're coachable and they work hard then good things will happen," said Moorhead.

The competition between these two brothers is always there.  From the basketball court, to the classroom and even their own back yard.

"We're competitive when we play against each other one on one, or in the gym, we just always want to beat each other," said Matt.

But in the end the Lindsay twins are competitors that have one goal in mind they want to accomplish before their time at North Myrtle beach is up.

"We want to win states, or regions first and go on to the state playoffs and go far in the playoffs," said Matt.

Josh certainly agreed, "It would be pretty sweet knowing that I won it with my brother and my teammates."
