Grayson Allen was involved in another incident on Wednesday night — and Duke didn’t even have a game.
After Michigan State freshman Miles Bridges was accidentally tripped by Minnesota’s Dupree McBrayer, members of the Izzone showered the opposing player with chants of “Gray-son Al-len.”
It was pretty clever. It was also terrible news for Allen because it suggests his name has become a synonym for trip, to be invoked when dirty play occurs. I could definitely see this becoming a trend. Allen truly has the ideal name for such chants. A two-syllable first name and two syllable surname is great when things are going good, but a curse when things aren’t.
