Niemo’s Notes | Delaney a Cousy ‘Quarterfinalist’; Boggs to valpo

Malcolm Delaney  has made the first cut for the Bob Cousy Award, which goes to the top point guard in the nation (even though he’s no longer playing the point).  This list was cut from 66 (I counted 67) to 20 (see ya, Hank Thorns).  Next month that will be trimmed to 10, then to 5 in March, with the winner named at the Final Four.

Nolan Smith of duke is the only other ACC player on the list, though the ACC has produced the winner three of seven years — Felton (unc), Lawson (unc), and Vasquez (maryland).  Kemba Walker of uconn has to be the favorite right now along with Jimmer Fredette of byu.

Ben Boggs has announced he’s transferring to valparaiso in Indiana.  valpo is best known as Bryce Drew U., for his game-winning shot of the 1998 NCAA Tournament.  valpo is in the Horizon League (butler).  For more on this, go to

    Speaking of transfers, Hank Thorns is the starting pt. guard at TCU, averaging – 9 pts and 6 assists a game with FG and 3pt pct. at 40% and 33%. He is probably not the scorer he had hoped he could be but, at least he is getting to start. So, good for him. He wouldn’t have gotten a lot of time with us. Green would have taken his minutes. We’ll see how Ben does.
