Duke finds outside stroke, blazes past Georgia Tech

According to reports, Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski has reinstated Grayson Allen for Wednesday night's 110-57 win over Georgia Tech after the junior guard missed one game due to suspension for tripping Elon's Steven Santa Ana. Without Allen, the Blue Devils lost their conference-opener on the road against Virginia Tech, 89-75.

Here's footage of Allen's latest offense, which came against Elon on December 21 and earned him his "indefinite suspension" of one game.

In addition to the suspension, Allen was stripped of his captaincy by the program. The expected recovery time is four weeks. After that: Road games at No. 12 Florida State and No. 9 Louisville - Allen was caught tripping players from both teams in Durham last season.

Krzyzewski decided that one game is enough for young Grayson Alan, in spite of earlier claims that he would be indefinitely suspended.

Giles made the first start of his career after playing in the last three games. Jayson Tatum (15.8 points, 7.5 rebounds) has scored in double digits in all six games since making his debut and fellow freshman Frank Jackson (11.8 points) has been solid, but big men Marques Bolden and Harry Giles have yet to make an impact.

Coach Mike Krzyzewski had a few things to take care of before his back surgery on Friday.

According to ESPN, Duke's game against Georgia Tech will be Krzyzewski's last before leaving the team to undergo back surgery.

"It has been about a month of this", Krzyzewski said.

He had to watch film on Boston College, and even though he won't be there Saturday when the Eagles come to Cameron Indoor Stadium, he had to get started on a game plan.

At the time, Krzyzewski said he would suspend the preseason AP All-American guard and his team's second-leading scorer "until I feel good about the entire situation where he is at". Maybe one game was the right answer. "I was home over break, and I knew coming back I was going to have to work my way back and earn it and be under control and accept whatever discipline came by way from our coaching staff". Hopefully he keeps getting seven assists and one turnover.

"The biggest thing for me over the last month is how exhausted you get because of pain", Krzyzewski said. Allen had three assists before he attempted a field goal or free throw, finally driving aggressively toward the basket to draw a foul with 14:45 remaining in the first half. We're also unsure if Krzyzewski will allow associate head coach Jeff Capel to make the decision on when it's appropriate for Allen to return after he takes over as the interim coach. "I was just out there attacking, trying to be smarter".
