Grayson Allen isn’t the only all-american dealing with issues controlling his lower extremities.

Dillon Brooks, a preseason all-american for No. 13 Oregon, was ejected from Saturday evening’s game at Washington State for kicking Wazzu’s Josh Hawkinson in the groin.

And he caught him square. This looks painful:

The question with Brooks is intent, and frankly, it sure looks intentional. I’m just not sure that movement is natural, but his foot does get caught underneath him, and it’s not crazy to think that the follow-through of trying to avoid an injury to his right foot/ankle/lower leg wound up in the groin on Hawkinson.

But that’s not what it looks like. And the look of it is what got Brooks ejected.

Oregon was losing to the Cougars midway through the first half.
