Dakota and Dylan Gonzalez, better known as the Gonzalez twins, are both guards for UNLV’s basketball team. This past season, the Kansas transfers were instrumental in the Lady Rebels success — Dakota led the team in scoring, while Dylan made a significant contribution coming off the bench.


''Some people make it seem like I don't care about basketball and I was really offended by that because they don't see all the work I put in, they don't see the person behind the Instagram.''

— Dylan Gonzalez, on fame outside basketball

To view the twins solely through the lens of basketball would be a mistake, as their appeal far exceeds the confines of the Thomas & Mack Center. Both Dakota and Dylan sport close to a million followers each on Instagram, with fans drawn in by the duo’s fashion sense and beauty. Ironically, their social media success has led some to question their commitment to the sport.

The Gonzalez twins share a passion for singing. Their song “Say Goodnight” has attracted nearly one thousand listens per day since being posted on SoundCloud a little over a week ago.
