Joe Alexander, West Virginia’s star forward, was born in Taiwan. He also lived in Beijing and Hong Kong. As he talked about his upbringing Wednesday, one reporter posed an intriguing question: Would Alexander be interested in playing for Taiwan in the Olympics? The usually loquacious Alexander was momentarily stumped. “I don’t’ know,” he finally said. “I am a U.S. citizen, so I don’t know if I could.” Told that he might still be able eligible, Alexander nodded and said: “It would be cool to know the rule on that.”
