Twins Cavinder and Miami suffer March Madness heartbreak when LSU knocks them out in the Elite Eight… after the 22-year-old TikTok stars took over the tournament during Cinderella’s run
Sunday night marked the end of the March Madness road for Miami and his TikTok sensation Cavinder twins after they were defeated 54-42 by No. 3 seed LSU.
Miami entered the game as big outsiders and a ninth seed, but with plenty of confidence having eliminated No. 4 seed Villanova, No. 1 seed Indiana, and No. 8 seed Oklahoma State in the earlier rounds.
The Final Four proved to be a step too far, however, as LSU dominated in Greenville, South Carolina, to send Miami packing.
The Hurricanes have become the most talked about team in the NCAA Women’s Tournament, thanks in part to their Cinderella run, but also to their two TikTok-famous players, Hanna and Haley Cavinder.
Hanna entered for six minutes of the Elite Eight matchup, spending the majority of the game on the bench, while her sister Haley had two points and four rebounds in 29 minutes of action.
