Delaney Survives First Cut on Wooden List

Malcolm Delaney was named one of the top 30 midseason players in contention for the John Wooden Award, recognized as the top award in college basketball and going to the player of the year.  Delaney was one of the top 50 preseason candidates, and continues on with this update.  Delaney was the ACC’s leading scorer last year and currently holds that spot this year, though his average continues to drop since moving from the point to the 2-guard.

Delaney was also on the Bob Cousy Award list for the nation’s top point guard.  That list was supposed to be trimmed from 67 to 20 earlier this week, but I have not seen an update yet on the award’s web site trimming the list.

In addition to his passion for Hokie hoops, Niemo has attended 126 straight VT football home games (every game since '94), eclipsing the 100 mark in September of '09 and recently attended his 20th consecutive VT/uva game. During the final home basketball game of his senior year, he was brought onto the court and was awarded 2 passes to the Atlantic 10 Basketball Tournament in Philly during a timeout for being a "Super Fan" during his time at VT. The Hokie Bird made the award on behalf of Athletic Director Jim Weaver. Niemo was known to be in the front row of every home game with his familiar red afro hairdo.
