Delk Twins Will Stay Together

Some guys just say they want to play together, but the Delk twins are different. This is for certain. The Jackson North Side (Tenn.) guards will be calling the same place home next year in college.

Some brothers, especially twins, want to carve their own niche after high school and go their separate ways. Not Reginald and Richard Delk.

The Delk Brothers, who were better known as the nephew of NBA shooting machine Tony Delk until recently, won't even listen to anyone talking about taking one of them without the other.

``That'll happen," Richard said. "We have always talked about it. We go everywhere together and college won't be any different."

``It never enters my mind of us going to different school," Reginald said. "We've been together the whole time and we help push each other. That's part of the reason why we want to go to college together."

Richard is a 6-4 1/2, 165-pound point guard at Jackson (Tenn.) Northside who is also able to slide over and play some at the two. However, he's a better ballhandler, defender and passer than Reginald, a 6-5 scorer who is more like his uncle - a pure shooter from the perimeter.

``I think I shoot it a little better, but he likes to distribute the ball," Reginald said. "I want him to shoot a little more, but he's still got that point guard in him. He always tries to get everyone involved."

The duo are practically inseparable. ``We want to get playing time wherever we go," Richard said. "A big role and somewhere we can get a good education."

Right now the Delks, who play for the Mid-State Ballerz, are looking at Mississippi State, Louisville, Arkansas, UAB, Tennessee, Florida, Mississippi and N.C. State.
