Krzyzewski statement on Allen suspension

Duke has announced an indefinite suspension for junior guard Grayson Allen following Allen's trip of an opponent during the Blue Devils' win against Elon on Wednesday night.

The school released a statement from head coach Mike Krzyzewski:

“We have had the opportunity to thoroughly review the incident involving Grayson Allen from last night’s game against Elon. 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 is second on the team in scoring at 16 points per game. Duke's next game is its ACC opener at Virginia Tech on Dec. 31.
