Duke Blue Devils freshman forward Wendell Carter Jr. may have gotten away with an elbow straight to the face of Michigan State Spartans senior forward Ben Carter. The two got tangled up late in the second half of the game between the two teams at the State Farm Champions Classic on Tuesday, with one Carter whacking another.

The ruling on the court was a live-ball contact technical foul, which allowed Carter Jr. to remain in the game. It still gave Michigan State the same outcome as a Flagrant 2 foul would have — two free throws and the ball.
