Names Delaney a Top 50 Shooter

Jeff Goodman of ranked the top 50 shooters in NCAA basketball. Malcolm Delaney came in at #35.  Interestingly enough, he is the second highest rated ACC player, just one spot behind Jon “Crazy Face” Scheyer of duke who was #34.  There were no other ACC players in the top 50. 

This goes to show how much star power, especially at guard, the ACC lost after last season.  If you look at three-point shots made by ACC players from last year, the top seven are all gone (Scheyer was #8, Delaney #9).  Sharp shooters like McClinton, Oglesby, Douglas, and Ellington have all moved on.  I was surprised to not see Greivis “Greasy Face-quez” Vasquez on the list.
