KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — An attorney for Kansas forward Cliff Alexander says the freshman has answered all requests for information from the NCAA as it investigates whether a member of his family received improper benefits from an NBA agent.

Paul K. Stafford also said in the statement Thursday that Alexander has been willing to be interviewed by the NCAA since March 2, two days after the organization informed Kansas of its concerns and Alexander was held out of a game against Texas.

Alexander was held out of the Jayhawks’ final three regular-season games, and coach Bill Self said Wednesday that he does not anticipate him playing in the Big 12 tournament.

Stafford issued his statement shortly before Kansas played TCU in the quarterfinals.
