Grayson Allen... is that you?!

Fans of the UNC basketball program had flashbacks to Allen's days at Duke when Kyle Filipowski blatantly tripped Harrison Ingram during Saturday night's regular-season finale.

If you missed what happened, here's the clip.

Of course, no foul was called, and there wasn't even a review on the play (which, shouldn't be surprising given where the game was played...)

If you scanned through social media, you would see that 99.9% of people watching the game felt that Filipowski lifted his leg on purpose. Well, after the game, the Duke sophomore tried to defend himself on the matter.

Let's just take a moment to call out Filipowski, or should we say... Tripowski, on his nonsense.

For starters, Filipowski 10000% knew that Ingram was behind him. Not only did Filipowski look back directly where Ingram was, but Ingram proceeded to put his hands on Filipowski's back as he tried to get by him. When Ingram made contact, all of a sudden Filipowski's leg went directly up in the air.

Sorry buddy, you didn't slip!

Duke has its fair share of dirty players that have gone through the program. Grayson Allen made a living off of plays similar to the one that Filipowski made on Saturday night.

For a guy who tried to sell being injured during a court storming, it's quite funny to see what a miraculous recovery he's made over the last few weeks. His injured leg looked just fine as he blantly tried to trip Harrison Ingram, but hey, the Tar Heels came out on top in this one.

If you're in the Durham area, be on the lookout for Kyle Tripowski, he might try to trip some UNC basketball fans if he comes in close contact with them!
