GLASGOW, Ky.—The Tinsley brothers, both 5-foot-10 guards, thought the opportunity to play college basketball on the same team seemed like only a dream. But Tuesday it became a reality, as both signed with Brescia University.

The Glasgow, Ky., seniors are the sons of Cannelton graduates John and Michelle (McBrayer) Tinsley. John was also their coach this season.
Trey was being pursued by several colleges for his three-point shooting ability and Ryne was being considered by Brescia University and several colleges for his point-guard status.
Trey scored 1,058 varsity points and hit 48 percent of his three-point shots this year, 44 percent for his career. He hit 222 career three-pointers and before transferring to Glasgow this year he hit a school-record 82 in one season for Grayson County.
Ryne had 355 career assists and 646 points. He hit 52 percent from two-point range for his career.
The twins’ teams compiled a 70-42 record in their career.
Ryne plans to major in physical therapy and Trey plans to major in business management or education.
