ESPN announcers, including former Duke players Jay Bilas and Jay Williams, criticized Allen and called for disciplinary action to be taken by either Krzyzewski or the ACC.
During a game against Louisville on February 8, Allen stuck both his legs out and appeared to intentionally trip Cardinals forward Ray Spalding as he ran up floor, resulting in a flagrant foul. Allen reacted emotionally on the team bench after the decision. Grayson was awarded a technical foul for the play, and stormed to the bench where he threw a teary-eyed tantrum. Initially, Allen tripped Louisville Cardinals' big man Ray Spalding while then doing so again to Florida State Seminoles' guard Xavier Rathan-Mayes. None other than Jason Dufner weighed in on Thursday with his take on Allen and the suspension via a series of tweets. I'm sorry to the officials who had to call that, I'm sorry to my team. After the game, Santa Ana and Allen met, with Allen apologizing and the two reportedly shaking hands and ending things amicably.
Yes, I have had lots of time to sit and think - quite literally years to sit and think. This time you will be suspended. Duke wound up winning the game 72-61, but it certainly wasn't their proudest.
But whenever the suspension ends, the matter won't be over because Allen will be publicly monitored like few players in his sport ever have been. The same guy who upbraided Oregon's Dillon Brooks for celebrating an NCAA tournament victory over Duke with what the great coach deemed too much enthusiasm hadn't yet suspended a Duke player who'd become a menace to opponents.

As per a student, it is very hard to manage with the stipend especially for the ones who come from economically weaker sections. The gherao was lifted on Wednesday morning following intervention of officials from Hijli outpost inside the institute campus.
After the game, Krzyzewski didn't want to hear about how he handled Allen.
Allen has not been playing that well this season as he is shooting 38.7 percent from the floor and 33.7 percent from three. How will Allen conduct himself when he returns - and absorbs the unbridled scorn of every opposing crowd?
"You could tell the whole half, he was out of it", Krzyzewski said.
