UPDATE: Grayson Allen has been indefinitely suspended by Duke.

Duke's Grayson Allen turned heads again Wednesday with a blatant kick that earned him a technical foul against Elon. After the dirty play, and there's no other way to describe it, he lost his marbles on the bench.

And it's not the first time "dirty play" and "Allen" have shared time in the same sentence.

Kicking Elon's Steven Santa Ana is the latest in a growing line of kicks, trips and controversial plays by the Duke star.

Two months after reflecting via ESPN how ashamed he was of, and ready to move past, those incidents, Allen is back to his old antics.
