FSU basketball continued its hot streak by demolishing the No. 7 Duke Blue Devils Tuesday night. Did Grayson Allen get away with more shenanigans against FSU?
This FSU basketball team might be the most talented and deepest team Leonard Hamilton has had at FSU.
They’ve beaten Duke before on several occasions, but Tuesday’s win made it clear FSU was the better team.
Duke’s Grayson Allen was kept in check all night, held to nine points on two of six shooting. Five of his points came at the free throw line.
You’ll remember that Allen has a history of on the court shenanigans, beginning with him tripping FSU’s Xavier Rathan-Mayes last season.
Allen has tripped more opponents, and even served a one game suspension for tripping an opposing player this season already.
The FSU game was just his second game back, and it looks like he’s still up to no good. Check the Twitter video below:
Now, was Allen going after the ball? Absolutely. If you’ll notice it was the FSU bench where he wad heading towards. Did he have to extend his arms and push-off like that?
FSU basketball assistant coach Dennis Gates responded and seemed to come to Allen’s defense:
Allen always tries to be real slick when he’s up to his antics. Check out what he did last week:
There was absolutely no need for him to lift his leg up in that manner. The ACC ruled that there was insufficient evidence that the kick was deliberate.
The guy is just a dirty player. At least FSU basketball made him leave the Tuck Center with a huge L Tuesday night.
The ‘Noles will be back in action against another ranked opponent when they travel to UNC Saturday at 2 p.m.
