Coach K lectures Oregon’s Dillon Brooks, Grayson Allen shuns him after Sweet 16 loss

Duke star Grayson Allen — you know, the guy who likes to trip people — did not take Thursday’s Sweet 16 loss to Oregon well at all.

Allen, who struggled in a 4-for-13 night, refused a hug from Ducks star Dillon Brooks as he walked off the court. (You can watch it right here.)

Allen might’ve been salty because Brooks had just hit a long 3-pointer in the final seconds, despite the fact the Ducks were up by 11.

Coach K definitely didn’t like it and apparently told Brooks after the game.

"He just told me that I’m too good of a player to be showing off at the end," Brooks said. "And you know, he’s right. I gotta respect Duke. I’ve gotta respect them. And you’ve gotta learn from these things. He’s one of the greatest coaches."

Coach K denied it when asked about it by reporters, then said "You can say whatever you want. Dillon Brooks is a hell of a player. I said, ‘You’re a terrific player.’ And you can take whatever he said and then go with it, all right?"

Plenty of people chalked it up to the Dukies being sore losers.
