Did Duke Guard Grayson Allen Intentionally Trip an Opposing Player For the Fourth Time?
Did he do it again?
Duke guard Grayson Allen has been caught flagrantly tripping opposing players on three different occasions since Feb. 8 2016.
Saturday night, in just his second contest back since returning from a one-game suspension for the most recent incident on Dec. 21, Allen lifted his left leg in the air and made contact with Connor Tava of Boston College. Tava stumbled but did not fall.
This incident was not as flagrant or as clear cut as any of the previous three.
Still, Tava, for one, seems to think that Allen did it on purpose. In a now-deleted tweet reported by Yahoo!, Tava wrote “Can’t stop, won’t stop,” and sent out a link to video of the play.

Many fans and pundits on Twitter seemed to agree.
@SBNation OMG. The Tripper did it again. And no-account Duke will do nothing. Again.

Grayson Allen is either trying to trip the guy or kick him in the balls. There's nothing natural about whatever that motion is.

Is Connor Tava right? Did Grayson Allen do it again? You be the judge.
