Allen is still polarizing.
Duke senior guard Grayson Allen paced Duke with 14 points in the first half tonight against Michigan State, helping the Blue Devils take a 38-34 lead into halftime.
Six of Allen’s points came at the free throw line after he was fouled shooting behind the arc. On the second attempt, it definitely looked like Cassius Winston made some contact with Allen’s shooting arm, but that the controversial senior sold the call as well.

Sure, there was a little contact. But Grayson Allen acted like he was hit by a truck. He’s NBA-level flop-ready in college. https://t.co/mZxq9x0IQk

Two things are certain right now: Allen is going to be one of the best players in college basketball this season, and he is still going to flop.
