Matt Norlander has a column up on Grayson Allen’s senior season and how different it’s been from his last two.
We probably don’t have to remind anyone that there was a lot of controversy about Allen over the last two seasons and as Norlander rightly notes, he can’t make all the bad publicity disappear. What he can do though is exactly what he’s been doing: being a tremendous leader for a very young team. Watch him and you’ll see.
Here is is patting Marvin Bagley on the back after a big play. There he is taking Trevon Duval aside to discuss something. And later telling Wendell Carter not to worry about a foul.
And if that’s not enough, look how he leads by example, diving on the floor before anyone else.
There’s literally no one else on this team who can fill Grayson’s role. He’s become a fine captain and has done so after facing adversity like no other Blue Devil before him.
