Grayson Allen’s every move has come under scrutiny this season because of his propensity to trip opposing players. He’s been suspended a game this year because of that among other issues he’s had on the court. He’s been more demonstrative than in years past and most people have not taken too kindly to it. However, Allen is still a model citizen and has never had trouble off the court like a lot of other players.
Ahead of college basketball’s greatest rivalry game with North Carolina, Tar Heels coach Roy Williams spoke out about the excessive coverage of Allen and was on the player’s side of the controversy.
From The News & Observer:
Williams, though, said the scrutiny Allen receives is “way, way, way blown out of proportion.”
“I see him trying to get over a screen and everybody here try it,” Williams said. “You put all your weight on one foot, what does your other leg do? It goes back. So I see all those things. I think he’s a wonderful kid who he himself, and Mike (Krzyzewski) himself, has said has made some mistakes.”
The game between the Blue Devils and the Tar Heels tips off at 8 p.m. tonight and should be a great game as usual.
