Duke basketball star Grayson Allen continues to terrorize his opponents on the court — and not in a good way.
Coach Mike Krzyzewski suspended Allen indefinitely for tripping Elon’s Steven Santa Ana in the first half of Wednesday night’s game. It’s his third tripping incident since February.

“We have had the opportunity to thoroughly review the incident involving Grayson Allen from last night’s game against Elon,” Krzyzewski said in a statement. “As I stated last night, the incident was unacceptable and inexcusable. He took an important step last night by apologizing in person to Steven Santa Ana and Coach Matt Matheny. As a program, we needed to take further steps regarding his actions that do not meet the standards of Duke Basketball. To that end, we have determined that Grayson will be suspended from competition for an indefinite amount of time.”
Allen, a junior, helped lead the Blue Devils past Wisconsin in the 2015 national championship game. He played sparingly that season, but scored 16 points against the Badgers and averaged 12.5 points per game in the NCAA Tournament. Last year, Allen averaged 21.6 points per game.
