Watch: Duke’s Allen gets flagrant 1 for tripping

Tuesday February 9th, 2016

Duke guard Grayson Allen appeared to intentionally trip a Louisville player during the second half of Monday night’s game at Cameron Indoor Stadium.

Cardinals forward Ray Spalding grabbed a rebound and began dribbling up the floor when Allen, who was lying on the court after a missed layup, swung his right leg in Spalding’s path.

Spalding fell to the court, and Allen was assessed a flagrant 1.

Last month an Oregon State player, Jarmal Reid, was ejected and suspended four games after he tripped a referee during Beavers’ loss to Utah.

The sophomore Allen entered Monday leading Duke with 20.9 points per game this season. Earlier this month Allen was named a finalist for the Jerry West Award given to the nation’s top shooting guard.
