Grayson Allen's Being Criticized For Raising His Hand To Get Credit For Tip-In

Grayson Allen shushes the crowd during a Duke game.

People are unhappy with what Grayson Allen did late on Sunday.

With 37 seconds left in Duke's second round NCAA Tournament loss to South Carolina, junior guard Grayson Allen raised his hand toward the scorer's table to make sure he got credit for a tip-in at the rim.

The tip-in cut the Gamecocks' lead to 84-77.

People are unhappy with Allen's "selfish" act.

This could've just been an instinctual move by Allen, as the raising-the-hand move is done all the time by basketball players to get credit for a tip in.

In that moment, though, it's a bad look.
