Duke's new white asshole Grayson Allen tripped another player. Last time it was Louisville's Raymond Spalding. This time it is Florida State's Xavier Rathan-Mayes. With three seconds left in a 15 point game, Allen sticks his leg back to intentionally trip Rathan-Mayes. The ACC issued a stern reprimand and Coach K stood by the decision not to suspend his star player. Especially because this form of discipline worked the last time. Coach K said this type of reprimand is the standard for a flagrant-1 foul, and that Allen shouldn't face more severe punishment than other players guilty of similar infractions. But I think the thing he's missing here is that's it's his second time in short succession. Had a player punched two opponents, surely he'd be suspended. Committed two overly aggressive flagrant fouls, maybe not. But anyone can see that this entitled prick needs a punishment more severe than a sharp rebuke.
