Alexander Wolff is a writer for Sports Illustrated and former owner of the Vermont Frost Heaves of the Premier Basketball League (PBL).

He has written several books about basketball, among them Big Game, Small World (ISBN 0-446-52601-0), a look at basketball around the world. His most notable and notorious work was a feature article in Sports Illustrated from June 12, 1995 entitled "Why the University of Miami should drop football." In it, Wolff wrote an open letter to then-president Tad Foote claiming that the Hurricanes were a "disease" that had ruined the school's image and needed to be at least temporarily shut down. Wolff wrote a follow up letter in 2011 to the current UM president, Donna Shalala, following the Nevin Shapiro booster controversy.[1]
