FINAL FOUR BOUND . . . Much has been made about Kentucky's outstanding basketball freshmen class and how many of them are in the 'one and done' category with their next stop being the NBA. One freshman not in that category will enjoy the Wildcats' upcoming trip to the NCAA Final Four and, most likely, look forward to contributing to Kentucky's success in the coming years. That player is E.J. Floreal, a freshman walk-on. Floreal is just two years removed from Palo Alto High, where he starred in basketball plus track and field before departing prior to his senior year as his family moved to Lexington, Ky. Floreal, one of nine freshmen, is not among the Kentucky stars this season, which continued with a 75-72 win over Michigan on Sunday n the Midwest Regional final. Far from it. The 6-foot-3 freshman guard from Dunbar High has spent his time during the Wildcats' 28-10 season on the bench. Floreal has played in three games, all of four minutes. He mad his only field-goal attempt, has one rebound, one block and one steal. Safe to say Floreal is not declaring early for the NBA draft.
