GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) The Atlantic Coast Conference is reviewing an incident in which Duke guard Grayson Allen appeared to trip Florida State’s Xavier Rathan-Mayes.

ACC officials on Friday confirmed they were looking at an incident from the final seconds of No. 15 Duke’s 80-65 home victory Thursday night.

Allen dove to steal the ball from Rathan-Mayes with about 20 seconds left. Rathan-Mayes then appeared to grab the back of Allen’s jersey in an attempt to fling himself downcourt, but tripped over Allen’s left leg and fell with 3.4 seconds to play.

Official Tony Greene, positioned next to the players, did not call a foul.

In a home victory over Louisville two weeks earlier, Allen received a flagrant foul for tripping the Cardinals’ Ray Spalding.
