ACC Goes All-en | The Big Donut Named Player of the Week

Jeff Allen was named the ACC Player of the Week for the second time in his Hokie career on Monday.  Jeff garnered the honor despite playing just one game last week.  Obviously, it was a good one.  The Big Donut scored 24 points and snagged 11 rebounds, and most remarkably hit 10/12 free throws (he’s a 63% FT shooter) in the Hokies’ 71-59 win over florida state.

Jeff also won the award last season after posting double-doubles against vmi and penn state in early December of 2009.  He is the second Hokie to get ACC POTW after Delaney won it for his performances at the 76 Classic.

On a side note, perhaps Jeff should change his number to #5.  He ranks fifth all time at Virginia Tech in rebounds, blocks, and steals at this very moment.

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.

The Wild Hokie Club!

The Hokies experienced their worst season since the ricky "program bomb" stokes era. Sure, it would have been easy to quit on you, but did we quit when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? HELL NO!

 

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.

 

Any donation amount earns you a spot in our Wild Hokie Club. We'll even give you a shout out on Twitter and Facebook. We may even let you get armcurled by Niemo.
