Cliff Alexander on ESPNU

KU signee Cliff Alexander and Curie will be matching up against the #1 High School team in the nation (and former home of Joel Embiid) Montverde this afternoon at 3:30 EST/2:30 CST at the Hoophall Classic.

You may know him from his mixtape or from his ridiculous statlines, but today presents an opportunity to see a future Jayhawk play against some great competition on national television. According to MaxPreps Curie are the #8 HS team in the nation, and as I mentioned before, Montverde are #1. Curie has only lost a single game this season, and it was when Cliff was suspended... FOR DUNKING TOO HARD (okay, fine, it was hanging on the rim, but I like my version better).

Montverde has 4 top-100 recruits according to 247Sports, including two measuring at 6'9 and 6'10, so it will be interesting to see if Cliff can maintain his torrid statistical pace against some well-regarded big bodies inside.

All this is to say that if you're bored this afternoon and have a lenient boss/are the boss, or can't accomplish anything because you're so excited for Big Monday part deux, you can tune into your WatchESPN subscription (this one shouldn't be blacked out...), and take in a future KU player. You'll be able lord it over all of the casual KU fans at the sports bar next year when he puts together a 15-block triple double against Fort Hays State.
