Big Blue Nation can relax for this upcoming season, as one of the best set of basketball twins in the history of the sport will be making their way to the University of Kentucky this year. Not since the Arsdale twins of Tom and Dick in the 1960s have their been a more complete set of twins than that of Andrew and Aaron.
Andrew is an elite ball-handler that is already being regarded by some as the best point guard in college basketball before he even plays a game.
Aaron will immediately be one of the best scoring guard s in the nation, and both twins play a level of defense seen in a grizzled NBA veteran.
There latest highlight reel is out, and it’s well worth your time to watch:
In case you missed it yesterday, the Kentucky Wildcats basketball program added E.J. Floreal as a preferred walk-on, but basketball may not even be his greatest sport.
His mother was a track star at Tennessee before winning the silver medal in the 100-meter hurdles at the 1992 Olympics.
E.J. is also a track star, and he finished third at the California state meet in the 200 meters, fourth in the 100 meters and winning Boys Track Athlete of the Year honors from the San Jose Mercury News in 2011. Still, basketball remains his passion:
Track is sort of a hobby … I never saw myself as a track athlete.
