Texas Sen. Ted Cruz needed basketball advice.

So, he called the one person who just so happened to look like him: former Duke Star Grayson Allen.



On Saturday, the Texas Republican took on Jimmy Kimmel, host of 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!,' in a game of one-on-one at The Blobfish Basketball Classic in Houston. The charity event was held to raise money for Generation One and Texas Children’s Hospital are both winners.

Allen, meanwhile, is expected to be a late-first or early second-round pick in the upcoming NBA Draft and could end up as a member of the Dallas Mavericks.

For what it's worth, Cruz reportedly won 11-9.

Guess having his doppelganger there worked.
