After tripping players twice in one month, all Grayson Allen gets is a reprimand

By now, you’ve seen the video of Duke’s Grayson Allen tripping Florida State’s Xavier Rathan-Mayes last night, right? Let’s watch it again anyways:

This is the second time Allen has tripped a player this month. Here he is tripping Louisville’s Ray Spalding back on February 8:

Allen did get a flagrant foul for that, but two times in one month? Surely the ACC took action on Allen, right? Stopped this nonsense right in its tracks by slamming down with an iron fist?

Well…not so much. According to ESPN’s Andy Katz, the ACC issued a “reprimand” to Allen, which is essentially a slap on the wrist. 

“The ACC considers the matter closed and will have no further comment,” the league said in a brief statement.

Of course. It’s Duke.

    The best tweet as seen on Twitter regarding Grayson Allen

    DUKE Reprimand of Grayson allen = High 5 ..job well done.

    Sadly the ACC is agreeing with that statement. Wonder what the Vegas odds are for it happening again…my take…its a sure bet

    Just look at that picture of him. No way he is not Coach K’s love child. Along with that comes a free pass to do whatever the f*%# you want to do. There, mystery solved.

    Even the ESPN video is titled “Grayson Allen up to his old tricks” like he is some Dickensian scamp. I bet the ACC mussed his hair, and with a grin said “now off with you, you ne’er-do-well!”

    In his day James Lee would be the one I’d want to do it.

    He wouldn’t have the stones to do it to James Lee.

  9. And we lost a game just because a player spiked the ball in exuberance!!!??? The same penalty…2 shots and the ball!!!??? Talk about an imbalance! Allen’s tripping should be a flagrant AND a tech…4 shots and the ball.

      First we lost because we gave up 20 offensive rebounds. 2nd it is not 2 shots and the ball, it is 2 shots and point of interuption. They shot 2 ft then we shot our ft for the original foul called on A&M

    If Coach K had any integrity at all, he’d suspend Allen for at least one game. But he doesn’t, so he won’t.

    DUKE is an acronym for: Dirty Underhanded KENTUCKY Envy

    Allen took a chance on injuring an opponent with 3 seconds left in a 15 point game?

    Really, Grayson?

    The best / worst part is his cheesy, Alfred E Neumann-like “who, me”? expression afterwards
