ACC reviewing incident involving Duke guard Grayson Allen

GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) The Atlantic Coast Conference has reprimanded Duke guard Grayson Allen for an incident involving Florida State's Xavier Rathan-Mayes.

The league issued a three-paragraph statement Friday after reviewing the game, saying Allen was reprimanded for his ''involvement in the tripping of'' Rathan-Mayes.

ACC officials say the matter is closed and they will not comment further.

Allen stuck his left leg out and Rathan-Mayes tripped and fell with 3.4 seconds left in No. 15 Duke's 80-65 home victory Thursday night. That incident happened after Rathan-Mayes appeared to grab the back of Allen's jersey in an attempt to fling himself downcourt.

Official Tony Greene, positioned next to the players, did not call a foul.

In a victory over Louisville two weeks earlier, Allen received a flagrant foul for tripping the Cardinals' Ray Spalding.
