Kansas Forward Cliff Alexander Isn't Playing Today But Charles Barkley Somehow Said He Played "Pretty Good"

Kansas freshman forward Cliff Alexander will not suit up for the Jayhawks no matter how far the team advances in this year's NCAA Tournament, due to an ongoing NCAA investigation into his eligibility. Yet, despite Alexander being unavailable, CBS studio analyst Charles Barkley seems to think he played pretty well in the first half of today's Round of 32 match-up against Wichita State.

No one is doubting that Barkley, a former NBA legend and in-studio analyst for the NBA on TNT, knows the pro game. However, some have doubted the accuracy of his analysis during the tournament, and this flub certainly doesn't help matters.
