However, when it came to his daughters’ desire to play basketball, Brad Sellers didn’t exactly give them a ringing endorsement.
“He didn’t want us to play basketball,” Aurora senior guard Shayla Sellers said. “My mom was actually the person to put us in rec. My dad was like, ‘No, they’re too young.’”
