NEW YORK (AP) — Duke guard Grayson Allen received a flagrant one foul for hip checking North Carolina’s Garrison Brooks as the Tar Heels forward was running up the court late in the first half of an Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament semifinal on Friday night.

Brooks instructed journalists he felt Allen deliberately bumped him, and when Allen was once requested about it trainer Mike Krzyzewski jumped in.
“Do you assume that was once the one time somebody was once hipped within the recreation?” Trainer Okay mentioned. “For those who glance within the low publish, it is occurring always. So it came about at part court docket. They were given it. It is accomplished. And that did not win or lose the sport.”
Allen, a senior, was once reprimanded through the ACC for tripping two combatants all through his sophomore season. He was once stripped of his captaincy through Duke for any other travel as a junior.
