What's the best way to cover the loss of a player? Sign her twin sister.
That's exactly what the Canberra Capitals have done recruiting Alicia Froling after they lost her sibling Keely to the Sydney Flames.
Froling's the fifth signing for the WNBL powerhouse, following the announcements of Kelsey Griffin, Mikaela Ruef, Kelly Wilson and Tahlia Tupaea.
The 25-year-old played for the Bendigo Spirit last season - her first in the WNBL.
"I'm very excited to be playing in Canberra for the upcoming WNBL season and I'm looking forward to playing in a team with a championship culture and learning from some of the best players in this league such as Kelsey Griffin," Froling said.
"I can't wait to be coached by [Paul Goriss], he's been really successful developing players and teams over the past few years."

It won't be the first time she's been coached by Goriss, with the pair working together at the Basketball Australia centre of excellence.
That relationship was a big factor in Froling making the switch from Bendigo to Canberra.
Goriss was also keen to reunite with Froling, with her toughness one of the traits he most admired.
"One Froling goes and another one comes in - we are very excited that Alicia chose the Caps," he said.
"I previously coached Alicia at the BA centre of excellence and with the under-19 Australian women's team, the Gems, at the 2015 World Cup.
"Alicia was a starter on that team and what I loved about her game was her physical toughness on defence, her rebounding, her ability to run the floor, her physicality in setting great screens for her teammates and her allround willingness to win and compete.
"She will fit right in with how we practice and play at the Caps and will be an integral part of our team.
"I'm looking forward to helping Alicia develop her game and continue her growth in the WNBL."
