Duke played its first game of the ACC slate and had to do it against Virginia Tech without emotional leader Grayson Allen. He was suspended indefinitely by Coach K after his latest tripping incident against Elon a couple weeks back. The Blue Devils didn’t fare too well without him as they lost to the Hokies 89-75.

It seems that now Allen is losing more than just valuable playing time, but he is losing his captaincy as well. Coach K made the decision and he was not exactly ecstatic about it when asked after the VT loss.

“Right now, I don’t want to talk about Grayson,” Krzyzewski said after the game, via ESPN. “He was part of the loss today by not being there and we’ve also ? instead of tri-captains, we’ve eliminated him from being a captain of the team.”

The Elon tripping incident was the third in a year for Allen, which prompted Krzyzewski to suspend him indefinitely.
