Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski has had enough of his star player acting out on the court.

During Duke's win over Elon Wednesday night, Grayson Allen stuck out his leg and intentionally tripped an opposing player. Krzyzewski said Allen's behavior was "unacceptable" and he suspended him indefinitely.

"We have had the opportunity to thoroughly review the incident involving Grayson Allen from last night's game against Elon," coach Mike Krzyzewski said in a statement. "As I stated last night, the incident was unacceptable and inexcusable. He took an important step last night by apologizing in person to Steven Santa Ana and Coach Matt Matheny.

"As a program, we needed to take further steps regarding his actions that do not meet the standards of Duke Basketball. To that end, we have determined that Grayson will be suspended from competition for an indefinite amount of time."

ESPN says the ACC has the authority to punish Allen further if they feel its necessary.

This is the third time Allen has appeared to intentionally trip an opposing player. He tripped Lousiville's Ray Spalding and Florida State's Xavier Rathan-Mayes last season.
