Grayson Allen Returns from Suspension vs. Georgia Tech: Comments, Reaction

They were playing at that time without the suspended Grayson Allen.

Grayson Allen scored 15 points in 27 minutes tonight in Duke's 110-57 win over Georgia Tech ... wait, wasn't Allen "suspended indefinitely" after tripping yet another opponent in a game on December 22? During that game, Allen tripped Elon's Steven Santa Ana, drawing a technical foul.

It has reportedly been Allen's third such tripping incident in the past calendar year. It was the first time Duke (13-2, 1-1 ACC) recorded a 100-point game since December 2015, and it became the fifth largest margin of victory in ACC history. The indefinite suspension lasted just one game - the Blue Devils' loss to Virginia Tech last weekend. The expected recovery period from his disk surgery is about four weeks. Seventeen days later against Florida State, Allen lifted his left leg and tripped Xavier Rathan-Mayes as the Seminoles guard began to run up court, resulting in a public reprimand from the ACC but no suspension. He said he would not rush to come back, but it got to a point where he couldn't take the pain anymore. After that, he told the media that he didn't know that he was going to play until the pre-game walkthrough, when Coach K told him that he's back on the team. And those freshmen - Harry Giles, Jayson Tatum, Marques Bolden and Frank Jackson - have played in the same game only three times because of various injuries.

Krzyzewski may have been motivated to bring Allen back before his back surgery, to not leave a loose thread for top assistant and interim head coach Jeff Capel to sew back into place. Earlier this week the school announced Krzyzewski would undergo back surgery, a procedure that will keep him away from the team for at least a month.

"I talked to Coach many, many times when I came back after the break".

For the first time in close to a month, Duke looked like a championship caliber team, and for the first time this season, the team showed the potential damage it can inflict with a healthy lineup.

"Removing the title, it hurts, and I understand it's something that had to be done with the discipline", Duke's guard said. Maybe one game was the right answer.

Up next, Capels first game in charge Satrurday against the Boston College Eagles.

"The biggest thing for me over the last month is how exhausted you get because of pain", Krzyzewski said. In addition, the Blue Devils were missing Allen's scoring ability. Those questions are now reserved for Krzyzewski, who will be unable to answer them until he gets back (or the postgame press conference against Georgia Tech - where he will also try to put the issue to bed).
