Duke players celebrate after Grayon Allen buzzer-beater.

Allen Buzzer Beater

What a finish just now at Cameron Indoor Stadium. With his team trailing 62-61 and the clock winding down, Duke guard Grayson Allen hit an incredible acrobatic buzzer-beater to lift the Blue Devils to a one-point win over the No. 7 Cavaliers.

Allen hit the shot with Virginia's Marial Shayok right on top of him. Also, he might have landed before getting the shot off, which is a travel but also almost impossible to call.

Duke led 61-60 with 27 seconds remaining when Allen stepped to the free throw line. An 86 percent shooter entering today, he missed both attempts.

Virginia took the lead on its ensuing possession on a reverse lay-up from Malcolm Brogdon, setting the stage for Allen's heroics. 

Duke was unranked this week for the first time in nine years. The Blue Devils will assuredly be back in the polls on Monday.
