Kansas freshman forward Cliff Alexander will miss Kansas’ game against Texas on Saturday because of a potential NCAA eligibility issue, the school announced on Saturday afternoon.
“The NCAA has alerted us to an issue that could affect Cliff’s eligibility,” KU athletic director Sheahon Zenger said in a statement. “As a precautionary measure Cliff will not take the court until we have resolved the issue.”
Alexander, a 6-foot-8 freshman forward from Chicago, is averaging 7.1 points and 5.3 rebounds per game.
“We are committed to NCAA rules compliance,” KU head coach Bill Self said in a statement. “and we want to make sure that we take every precaution to minimize the impact on Cliff.”
Zenger added that Kansas would have no further public comment until the issue is resolved.
