The two recently finished up their senior seasons, as they helped lead Central to the Class 4 District 1 semifinals.
"I had a chance to first see the twins play a couple years ago and knew they were going to play college basketball somewhere," Westminster women's basketball coach James Arnold said in a news release. "We are super excited to say that place is Westminster College."
James Arnold is a former Southeast Missouri State women's basketball assistant coach, leaving this past offseason to take the job at Westminster.
Westminster College is located in Fulton, Missouri, and the women's basketball team was picked to finish fourth in the St. Louis Intercollegiate Athletic Conference in a preseason poll.
