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 went down hard and stayed down in the backcourt as North Carolina scored. Officials stopped play and went to the courtside monitor to check a replay. Allen clearly stuck his backside out enough to bump the unsuspecting Brooks while the 6-foot-9 freshman was in the middle of a stride. Brooks was OK. He made two free throws with 52.7 second left.
Allen, a senior, was reprimanded by the ACC for tripping two opponents during his sophomore season. He was stripped of his captaincy by Duke for another trip as a junior.
