Make room in the trophy case for Virginia Tech guard Malcolm Delaney. Today, he earned a spot on the 2010 Associated Press All-America honorable mention team. Delaney is now one of the most decorated basketball players to ever play for the Hokies.

The junior from Baltimore, Md., led the Atlantic Coast Conference in scoring average (20.2 ppg) in 2010 and was a unanimous selection to the All-ACC first team. Earlier this month, he also was named a fourth team All-American by Sporting News, and all-district team by the NABC and the USBWA.

Delaney led the Tech in scoring and assists this season and if he stays for his senior year, he would be within striking distance of Tech’s all-time scoring mark. This year, the Hokies finished 25-9, good enough to tie for third in the ACC and also tying the school record for wins in a season.

Delaney is the first Virginia Tech player to earn AP All-America honors since Zabian Dowdell was named an honorable mention in 2007. He is one of five ACC players named to the teams this season.

And we do it for free! But, just like NPR, we rely on the generosity of our loyal fans to help keep this humble Hokie website alive. That being said, see how you can help TechHoops.com make it to 10 years!

 

Jon King, Ben Floyd and Dan Rickenbach all got in on the action and we encourage all TechHoops heads to do the same.
