During the end of the first half against the North Carolina Tar Heels in the Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament semifinal, Allen threw a hip check into Tar Heels forward Garrison Brooks. On the play, Allen, who was playing in his final ACC Tournament game, was hit with a flagrant foul on the play.
During the incident, Brooks fell down on the play. It was clear that Allen was trying to hip check Brooks, as the Tar Heels dribbled the ball up the court.
There was no clear reason as to Allen should have done this. However, with his past actions, he can’t help himself, as Allen is no longer getting the benefit of the doubt when incidents like this happen.
After the hip check, Brooks knocked down the two free throws. North Carolina led 34-27 after Brooks made the two free throws.
North Carolina eliminated Allen and the Blue Devils on Friday night, as the Tar Heels will face the Virginia Cavaliers on Saturday night for the ACC’s automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament.
