Cliff Alexander has accomplished a lot this season: a national letter of intent to the Kansas Jayhawks, a berth in the McDonald’s All-American game, best player on the #2 high school basketball team in the nation, top 5 overall recruit ranking, replacing Eric Gordon as the public enemy #1 in Illini basketball nation, defeating the #1 recruit in the nation Jahlil Okafor and Whitney Young for the Chicago Public League title. Ok, scratch that last one. Alexnader’s Curie High (Chicago, IL) will be stripped of each and every victory this basketball season. The offense? Seven players were ruled academically ineligible. Since the start of the season. None of them have been named publicly as of yet. But we’ll find out if Cliff Alexander is one of them or not when the Curie Condors take the court next. Yes, by Illinois High School Association rules, Curie is still eligible to continue on in the playoffs. Although that could change if IHSA rules against them before the postseason begins on Monday. So if they play, and we see Cliff Alexander in street clothes on the bench, we’ll know. From ABC 7 Chicago The problem, Chicago Public Schools say, is that individual study papers for each student, which would have allowed them to play, were not filed by administrators at Curie. Effective immediately, Curie head coach Michael Oliver has been suspended from coaching for a period to be determined by CPS CEO Barbara Byrd Bennett. Paul M.
