Duke junior Grayson Allen began his indefinite suspension last week as Allen sat out his first game on Saturday. The No. 5 Blue Devils lost on the road, 89-75, at Virginia Tech to open up ACC play as Allen watched the action from the bench.
After the game, Steve Wiseman of the Durham Herald-Sun reported that Allen is no longer a team captain for Duke. Seniors Amile Jefferson and Matt Jones will be the team’s captains now.
After being involved in his third tripping incident of the last two seasons during Duke’s win over Elon last week, Allen was suspended indefinitely as this appears to be the latest step in his punishment for the dirty play — and his subsequent reaction on the bench.
