Allen returning to Duke for senior season

Grayson Allen's return gives college basketball the villain it desperately needed

Allen averaged 14.5 points, 3.7 rebounds and 3.5 assists as a junior previous year, down from his 21.6 points per game as a sophomore.

"The last few weeks have provided the opportunity for a lot of reflection and prayer", Allen said according to 247Sports. "I'm a firm believer that when something feels right, you go with it".

Duke is losing some top talent off of this year's team, but they always bring in some of the best recruits in the nation, so Allen will have some help as he tries to lead this Duke team back to the Final Four.

Allen averaged 14.5 points per game last season on a loaded Duke squad that won the ACC tournament before falling in the second round of the NCAA tournament to SC. Allen served a one-game suspension after again tripping an opponent, and he battled nagging injuries throughout the season.

Bill O'Reilly has released an updated statement after the official announcement of him leaving FOX News Channel. Shares in Twenty-First Century Fox were down less than 1 per cent at $30.50 in Wednesday afternoon trading.

Despite his basketball talent and IQ, many felt that Allen's inability to control his emotions would be a deciding factor in where he was taken in the draft.

Allen and fellow guard Frank Jackson are the only players on the roster who averaged more than 8 minutes of court time. He was a finalist for numerous national awards after averaging 21.6 points, 4.6 rebounds and 3.5 assists per contest; he was also just the ninth player to lead the Blue Devils in both scoring and assists in the same season. The Jacksonville, Fla., native was stripped of his captaincy for the incident and his ensuing reaction on the sidelines, and Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski suspended Allen for the team's ACC opener against Virginia Tech.

Luke Kennard, Jayson Tatum and Harry Giles have all declared for the draft from the Blue Devils. (No. 7), and remain in the mix for point guard Trevon Duval (No. 5) and forward Kevin Knox (No. 9).
