    BJ Anaya is 6'8", and looked to be about 350lbs. The joke I was making... never mind.

    You got me. I saw the thread bumped and immediately said to myself, "Now what!?"

    Boy, the "Grayson Allen what a great comeback story" narrative it is making its way through Twitter and I'm about to puke.

    Now we can have some tongue in cheek recovery story for Grayson during the tourney and he can rise to majesty before our eyes as the gilded savior or basketball.

    Obviously I'm not a big fan of his trips, but I didn't think this one was too bad. He plays violently anyway, so it didn't seem so out of character, and it was more of a basketball play than the trips. I guess I'd also rather lose a tooth or two from an elbow than screw up a knee from a trip.

    Disagree. I can't see the basketball play motivation in lifting one's elbow above their shoulder blocking one's own line of sight to the hoop + lane. This move looks to be done to create space between himself and the defender, which is a typical basketball play but not when it is done above the shoulders.

    It was a swim move that is very normal. I'd have to rewatch but I don't think it was really that high. It was a combination of higher arm and lower face.

    He was already around the man, when he threw the elbow.

    That was at least deserving of the technical.

    Nobody outside the arc clears out by elbowing the defender in the face.

    Swim moves lead with the hand/wrist. This led with the elbow. It was done to force/create space as I said before. It was not to evade or move around an opponent such as what a swim move would indicate. Watch it again as you stated

    Allen just got T'd up for slamming the ball on the court in frustration for getting an over-the back foul.

    3 fouls / 0 points 4:52 left to play in first half. Clemson up 1.
