Duke guard Grayson Allen will not be suspended for tripping Florida State’s Xavier Rathan-Mayes, the ACC announced Friday.

The ACC instead issued Allen a reprimand.

Allen tripped Rathan-Mayes late in the Blue Devils’ win over the Seminoles on Thursday. Rathan-Mayes was beginning to run behind Allen when the Duke guard stuck out his foot and sent Rathan-Mayes to the floor.

This is the second time Allen has tripped an opponent this month. He also stuck his foot out and took down Louisville’s Ray Spalding in a game against the Cardinals.

Florida State coach Leonard Hamilton told ESPN that Duke coach Mike Kryzewski apologized for Allen’s actions. 

“[Krzyzewski] acknowledged the fact and apologized to our staff and to let Xavier know too,” Hamilton told ESPN. “We accepted it and moved on. It's the end of it.”
