Grayson Allen Makes Another Dirty Play, Receives A Flagrant Foul 1

Duke senior Grayson Allen has a reputation of being one of the dirtiest players in college basketball. Last night when his team squared off against rival North Carolina in the ACC tournament, he lived up to this reputation as he made what appeared to be a dirty play late in the first half.

By no means was this the worst of Allen’s dirty plays, but it was clear that he purposely hip checked North Carolina’s Garrison Brooks on a fast break.

While the play was not called dead at the point the foul was committed, the referees looked it over after it happened and assessed a flagrant foul one to Allen.

“They got a fast break and I bumped him and fouled him,” Allen said after the game.

In live motion, it seems like it is just that: a physical play of players running into each other that fans see all the time in college basketball. However, when it is slowed down it is clear that Allen sticks his body out to purposely initiate contact with Brooks.

“I was surprised there was stoppage,” Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said. “But we’ll go with the call and move forward.”

Despite Duke making a late run, the went on to lose this game by a score of 74-69. North Carolina advances to face the Virginia Cavaliers in the ACC final, tonight at 8:30 p.m.
