Grayson Allen Officially Becomes Villain After Tripping Opponent

This is the second player the Duke guard tripped this month.

Duke's Grayson Allen might be picking up a reputation as a dirty player after he tripped a second opponent this month.

In the closing seconds of Duke's 80-65 win over Florida State on Thursday night, Allen was seen pushing his foot back in a manner that appeared intentional and tripped Seminoles player Xavier Rathan-Mayes.

The Blue Devils guard tried to downplay the trip and claimed it was an accident when he talked to reporters after the game.

"He wanted to keep playing physical, so I tried to walk away from it as he was grabbing me," he said. "We ended up tangling up and falling. It was really nothing."

On Feb. 9, Allen also tripped Louisville's Raymond Spalding after he grabbed the rebound.

Yeah, this is not a good look.
