Grayson Allen has one more year at Duke, and if this video from practice is any indication, he’s ready to ball out.
Duke has a new crop of blue chip freshmen coming in, and Mike Krzyzewski will once again turn to Allen to add some senior leadership.
Allen is coming off of a weird down season, in which his points per game dropped from 21.6 to 14.5, and he took a backseat to Luke Kennard. However, he had an explosive moment in practice today.
Unfortunately for sophomore forward Jack White, someone had to wind up on the wrong end of it.
Allen is basically the only returning Blue Devil with significant playing time. Sophomore center Marques Bolden is the second-most experienced returner with 24 games played, but only averaged 6.5 minutes per outing. While the freshman class is pretty fantastic, at least on paper, Duke fans will welcome seeing more of this from Allen.
