The talented freshman, who has played in 28 games, had a family member, or two, who reportedly took improper benefits from an NBA agent. If the NCAA does find this to be true, the Kansas Jayhawks may have to forfeit the entire 2014-15 season wins.
That’s because they would have used Alexander, which would be an ineligible player. That would mean the historic Jayhawks would have to relinquish their Big 12 Conference regular season championship that they recently won.
In addition, it would definitely force Alexander to enter the draft. However, according to Yahoo Sports’ Pat Forde, he hasn’t been interviewed about this. Yet, his family has hired a lawyer to help them with this matter.
The team will have to continue to play without the freshman, who was averaging 7.1 points and 5.3 rebounds in 17.6 minutes per game. He won’t be able to play again until he interviews with the #NCAA, which there is no timetable on when that would be.
This may cost Alexander an opportunity to play in the upcoming March Madness Tournament.
According to Forde, the NCAA still has to determine if the benefits were impermissible that the family received.
