Malcolm Delaney Makes the List of 20 finalist for the Cousy Award

Earlier this season Malcolm Delaney, Virginia Tech’s star guard and the ACC’s leading scorer, was named to a watch list for the 2010 Bob Cousy Award. The original watch list had 72 names of the nation’s top point guards. Today, that list was narrowed down to 20 and Delaney made the cut.

The annual award, named for Hall of Famer and Boston Celtic great Bob Cousy, recognizes college basketball’s top point guard.

Delaney, a junior from Baltimore, Md., leads the ACC in scoring and was a pre-season All-ACC selection by the media. He is one of three ACC players among the 20 finalist. Greivis Vasquez (maryland) and Jon Scheyer (duke) are also on the list.

This list will be pared down to 10 by Feb. 1, and then the final five names will be announced by March 1. The winner of the 2010 Bob Cousy Award will be announced on Monday, April 5, in Indianapolis, during the NCAA Final Four weekend.
