Duke guard Grayson Allen provided yet another historically bad flop during the Blue Devils’ 65-63 loss to Virginia on Saturday.
With his team trailing late, Allen attempted to tie up Cavaliers guard Kyle Guy, who retaliated by throwing an elbow.
The Duke senior attempted to sell the incident, but apparently the referee wasn’t buying it, which infuriated Allen.
After giving up its early first half advantage, Virginia mounted a successful comeback in the second half to earn a crucial road victory in Durham.
Allen was limited to just five points on 2-for-8 shooting, which continued his recent struggles, having been held under double figures for the fourth time in seven games.
While that may be frustrating, there’s obviously no excuses for blatant flops, which the guard has become notorious for throughout his college career.
