The ACC will review an incident involving Duke guard Grayson Allen regarding last night’s game between the Blue Devils and Florida State, according to an AP report.
The incident in question occurred during the final seconds of Duke’s 80-65 victory over the Seminoles when, with 20 seconds remaining, Allen dove to steal the ball from Xavier Rathan-Mayes, who later appeared to grab the back of Allen’s jersey before tripping over the sophomore’s leg with 3.4 seconds to go. No foul was called despite an official being right in front of the action when it happened.

It’s good that the ACC is reviewing this because, oddly enough, this is not the first time this season that Allen has been involved in such a controversy. Against Louisville two weeks ago, he was called for a flagrant foul for tripping Roy Spalding and at this point in the season, Duke cannot afford to lose such a key player to a potential suspension.
Stay tuned to Campus Sports for any further updates regarding Allen!
