Grayson Allen Got A Flagrant Foul For This Play vs. UNC

Grayson Allen caught doing another dirty trick.

ESPN

Grayson Allen has mostly stayed clear of controversy this season. That ended in the first half of tonight's ACC semifinal against UNC.

With under a minute left in the half, Allen appeared to throw his backside into Tar Heel forward Garrison Brooks. He picked up a flagrant foul for the play.

Like many other Allen on-court incidents, you could see this one either way. He doesn't make that much contact with Brooks, who fell as a result.

However, there is no real reason to bend into him if it wasn't intentional. As we know, Allen know longer gets the benefit of the doubt with these things, which is probably fair at this point.

Judge this latest Grayson Allen play for yourself.

Based on a quick look at Twitter, the non-Duke fans clearly think it was an intentional act by Allen. The refs obviously thought so to, assessing him the flagrant foul.

Brooks knocked down the two free throws as a result of the play, extending UNC's lead to 34-27. Joel Berry II committed a turnover with the next possession.

Cameron Johnson hit a layup with one second left in the half to extend the Heels' lead to 36-31 at the break. Brooks leads the team with eight points off the bench.

Allen is off to a slow start, with seven points on 1-of-4 from the field. He is four-of-five from the free throw line.

The winner of tonight's game will face Virginia in tomorrow night's ACC Championship Game. UVA knocked off Clemson earlier tonight at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
