Grayson Allen said he doesn't regret returning to Duke for his junior season despite his fallen draft stock.
Allen likely would have been a first round pick in 2016 after averaging 21.6 points with 42 percent shooting on three-pointers. NBA executives project Allen to be a mid-second-round pick if he leaves Duke.
"I knew with the decision I made, once I made it, I was going to live with it," Allen said Thursday prior to the team's first-round NCAA tournament game. "Obviously, I haven't had the season I'd like to have. A lot of things out of my control happened. I didn't know I was going to get injured three games into the year, reinjured later and all stuff happen in the middle.
"For me, I'm making best of the situation. I didn't come back for personal goals, I came back to be in the spot I am right now and trying to make another run for a national championship, and I'm still able to do that. So there's no regrets there."
Allen has dealt with numerous injuries and a suspension for multiple tripping incidents.
Allen has averaged 14.1 points per game this season and shot 36 percent from beyond the arc despite still not being 100 percent after a recent ankle injury.
