Grayson Allen is still the biggest thing in college basketball, like it or not

CHICAGO — This was supposed to be about Marvin Bagley, or Miles Bridges, or maybe even Jaren Jackson Jr. The Champions Classic, once deemed The Convention because of all the NBA GMs it draws, annually serves as a national introduction for the latest one-and-done talent that populates Duke, Kentucky, Kansas, and Michigan State.

It is not supposed to be about a senior. But somehow, Grayson Allen always finds a way to make the story about himself.

When Michigan State looked like it would head into halftime only down a point, it was Allen who canned a 30-foot three at the buzzer. When the Spartans tied it with 12 minutes left, it was Allen again with another back-breaking three. When Jackson hit a triple with under two minutes left in an attempt to spark one last Sparty run, it was Allen who answered with a three of his own on the other end.

College basketball is always trying to build up other stars, but Allen is the one it can’t get rid of. He proved again on the biggest stage of the regular season that he is the sport’s lead actor. This time, he was the hero. Many times before, he’s been the villain.

Whatever Grayson Allen is doing, he’s always omnipresent.
