Attorney mum on Cliff Alexander

Sunday, March 1, 2015

Arthur McAfee, a Washington, D.C.-based attorney retained by the family of Cliff Alexander regarding an undisclosed issue with the NCAA, hopes for a timely resolution of the matter.

“I am quite sure there is (NCAA timeframe). I don’t have any specifics on a timeframe at this moment,” McAfee told the Journal-World Sunday in a phone conversation. “I think everybody understands the nature of the remainder of the basketball season. That is obvious, (but) I think they’ll try to do this (investigation) as quickly and thoroughly as possible.”

Can he discuss what the NCAA inquiry is about?

“I cannot,” McAfee said. “As we get more information and it is more complete, we’ll be able to share information at a later point. I just don’t know if we have that at the moment. (We’re) just trying not to have too much speculation until we absolutely know what in fact are the issues.”

Mason sits: KU sophomore guard Frank Mason III, who injured a toe on his left foot late in Saturday’s win over Texas, did not take part in KU’s short practice Sunday, coach Bill Self said. “He’ll practice tomorrow, I’m sure,” Self said.
