Every move Duke guard Grayson Allen makes is evaluated under a microscope. Because of past incidents of tripping opposing players, any extra-curricular activity on the court from Allen has been closely scrutinized. He just can't seem to get away from it.
Early in the first half Monday against NC State, the Duke star once again wound up in a controversial exchange. Allen and NC State's Terry Henderson got tangled up -- and Allen extended a shove -- as the two walked to their respective benches during a timeout.

It's not much of a push from Allen, really. It was a shove to the chest. Honestly, these types of interactions happen in the heat of battle. Henderson, who raised his arms in frustration with Allen walking through the team's huddle, was just as guilty for the mix-up.
But it's yet another case of Allen finding himself in a situation best avoided.
