Erick Green Named a Wooden Award Midseason Top 25

The Wooden Award, named for the legendary ucla coach, goes to the NCAA’s most outstanding player each year, and is generally regarded as college basketball’s most prestigious individual award.

Our own Erick Green was named a ‘finalist’ on Thursday, part of the 25 players on the list.  He’s the first player since Malcolm Delaney from VT to be on the list.


Just two other players from the ACC, both from duke (Curry and Plumlee), were on the list.

The award will be given at the end of the season.

He also researches topics of interest such as Hokie recruits, program revenue, statistical data on the team, previews VT opponents, and discusses his favorite bourbons/Scotches. 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.

    Neimo, here’s hoping in 5 more posts (the big 1,000!) there will be something good to report, like a victory or a solid defensive effort, or a Bearfight.

  2. he wont win it because of where he goes to school, but name me another player who performs so consistently with an entire program on his back.
