Valentine, Prasse sisters make coaching easy for Paul

Benet basketball coach Peter Paul doesn't need to think hard scribbling out his starting lineup every night. Just remember the names Prasse and Valentine. Two sisters on one team isn't that uncommon. Neuqua Valley and York, to name two other schools, both feature twin sisters. But what makes Benet unique is just how much the Redwings rely on the sisters. Together twin seniors Nicole and Taylor Valentine, senior Sidney Prasse and junior Christen Prasse make up almost 80 percent of Benet's scoring, and 70 percent of its rebounding. It's added up to one big year. Benet's 18-game win streak spanned over two months, and these 24-6 regional champs are arguably the school's best team since the 2004 group that beat Bolingbrook to win a sectional.
