The Duke Blue Devils pulled off a much-needed victory over the Florida State Seminoles Thursday night in dominant fashion. However, the big win doesn’t seem to be the biggest story to come out of the game.
Late in the second half, point guard Grayson Allen appeared to trip Seminole Xavier Rathan-Mayes intentionally, but was not called for any kind of foul on the play.
This is second time in less than a month that this has happened with Allen. The first time, he was called for a flagrant foul after tripping Raymond Spalding.
It didn’t take long for the critics to come out against Allen. Former Duke superstar Jay Williams took to Twitter and called for head coach Mike Krzyzewski to suspend Allen.
Grayson Allen is a good kid but made some bad decisions. Duke should suspend him for 1 game for his repeated tripping actions. @MikeAndMike

This comes after the ACC announced they would look into the tripping incident. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Allen get punished by the conference, but it might be best for Krzyzewski to get the jump on them with a suspension.
If Allen is suspended for any specific time, it could hurt the Blue Devils as they look to push towards the NCAA Tournament.
