Grayson Allen is clearly the new Duke villain.
Duke has suspended Grayson Allen indefinitely for tripping Elon's Steven Santa Ana on a drive to the basket during the first half last night. This is the third different time that Grayson Allen has tripped an opposing player, so it was only a matter of time before Coach K suspended him, or else the ACC likely would have.
Allen received a technical for his actions last night and then was immediately spotted pouting on the Duke bench. He remained on the bench for the start of the 2nd half, though Coach K brought him back in for the final 16 minutes.
On February 9th, Allen received a flagrant foul for a similar incident in which he tripped Louisville’s Ray Spalding after he fell to the court and Spalding tried to go past him. Then just a few weeks later, Allen tripped FSU's Xavier Rathan-Mayes from behind as the kid tried to run by him.
After the game, Grayson Allen forced some crocodile tears in an apology which you can check out below, as well as Coach K's full statement about the suspension.
