Watch: Kansas' Cliff Alexander throws down on Oklahoma State

Wednesday January 14th, 2015

Kansas' Cliff Alexander is no ordinary freshman. Proof: this dunk over two hapless Oklahoma State defenders on Tuesday night.

That's Le'Bryan Nash who Alexander posts up and quickly overpowers. Nash, a sizable presence at 6-foot-7 and 235 pounds, hardly had a chance against the 6-8, 240-pound Alexander.

Anthony Allen Jr., a 7-foot forward/center for the Cowboys, was the victim who received the unfortunate posterization when he came over to help on Alexander.

After the dunk, Alexander was given a technical foul when he turned toward the scorer's table and flexed his biceps. Several minutes later the two teams were involved in a scuffle in front of the Kansas bench, which resulted in technicals issued to Nash and the Jayhawks' Jamari Traylor.

Kansas went on to defeat the Cowboys 67-57. Alexander finished with seven points and five rebounds. Frank Mason III led the Jayhawks with 16 points, while Nash led all scorers with 21 points.

Oklahoma State dropped to 2-2 in the Big 12 with the loss, while Kansas stayed perfect at 3-0.
