Self: Cliff Alexander Not Tall Enough To Score Over Kentucky's Length

Cliff Alexander's lack of length was problematic in Kansas' 72-40 loss to Kentucky on Tuesday.

Alexander had just eight points and eight rebounds as he struggled against the length of Willie Cauley-Stein, Dakari Johnson, Karl-Anthony Towns and Trey Lyles.

According to Bill Self, Alexander must learn to put himself in better position to score before he receives the ball.

“He’s not tall enough, and it was very evident tonight, to score over that length,” Self said.

Calipari: Kentucky Would 'Get Buried' By Any NBA Team

Kentucky defeated Georgetown College 121-52 in an exhibition game on Sunday.

Georgetown College coach Scott Briggs suggested John Calipari's team is good enough to beat some NBA teams.

"I told the guys in the locker room, they could have beaten some NBA teams tonight, there’s no question in my mind," Briggs told reporters after the game.

"I knew they were good coming into this game, but sitting out there watching it in front of their eyes, on the sideline, honestly I don't see how they're going to get beat this year. I don't like to say that, because I know people have off nights, and things can happen and this-and-that, and injuries and things like that, but if they play like they did tonight, they're an NBA playoff team."

Calipari quickly shot down that narrative by responding on Twitter.

"I hear Coach Briggs got excited after the game last night. Let me be clear: If we played ANY NBA team, we would get buried. ANY."
