Cliff Alexander – (Chicago, Ill.) – Curie – 2014

Date: January 18, 2014
Location: Hoop Hall Classic (Springfield, Mass.)
Curie (Ill.) vs. No. 1 Montverde (Calif.)
Committed College: Kansas

Evaluation:
Alexander had the most dominant performance of anyone here today at Hoop Hall. He is a power 5/4 player who viciously rebounds, dunks & scores over anyone. His dominance led to a Curie victory over then No. 1 Montverde today. He finished with 30 points and 13 points and totally dominated the game in it’s final minutes. He specializes in rebounding the basketball, because he can simply move anyone out of his way. He terrorized the offensive glass with multiple tip-dunks, including a crowd-pleasing left handed tip dunk over the Montverde post players. He is the most impactful player that I have seen at this moment and could easily put up monster numbers next year at Kansas. However, his long-term ceiling may be lower than the likes of Jahlil Okafor of Chicago, Ill., and Emmanuel Mudiay of Dallas, Texas, simply because he is a 6-8 PF with limited face-up skill.

Highlights of Alexander compliments of Iowa Elites:
