Grayson Allen may have tripped someone on the basketball court again. Or, he may not have.
Duke star guard Grayson Allen, who was suspended earlier this season after his third intentional trip in less than a year, is back in the news again. Video of Allen fighting through a screen during his team’s contest against Boston College is being passed around the internet. The question, of course, is whether he intentionally tripped another player.
In the clip, which you can see below, Allen fights through a screen set by BC big man Connar Tava. Allen’s left leg get tangled with Tava’s left leg, and Allen swings his leg back in response. It’s hard to tell whether it was intentional, but it certainly doesn’t look natural.
Allen is getting criticized by many in the industry. But to be fair, it is hard to tell if he was being malicious.
Expect to hear more about this in the coming days.
