ACC Ranks for 2008-09:
- 2nd in the ACC in FT% (86.9%)
- 5th in assists and assist-to-turnover ratio (4.5/1.6)

There was no time to break Malcolm in during his freshman year. Quite simply, the Hokies did not have a returning point guard on their roster. It was up to Malcolm and Hank Thorns to lead the Hokies, and Delaney established himself as one of the top freshman in the mighty ACC.
Malcolm finished his freshman campaign 4th on the team in scoring (9.6 ppg), 2nd in assists (3.1 apg), 1st in FT% (79%), 1st in 3-Pt% (40%), and 2nd in 3-pointers made (47).
Delaney really developed over the course of the season and played his best ball at the end of the year. He scored 15 points in both of VT’s ACC Tournament games on 10/15 shooting. Malcolm followed that up by averaging 14.9 ppg in Tech’s three NIT games on 16/26 shooting. He was 7/11 from the behind the arc in those five games.
Malcolm battles hard and showed an ability to draw charges on defense (must have learned from the big flopper, Deron Washington, Tech’s greatest charge-drawer of all time). But he can be beat off the dribble and is not a lockdown defender.

2006-07 Game Notes:
- 4/5 – Had a game-high 31 points for the U.S. Team in the 34th annual Capital Classic all-star game at the comcast center in College Park, MD. Teammate of Jeff Allen and Dorenzo Hudson in the game.
- 3/1 – Towson Catholic won their second title of the season. This time they took home the Baltimore Catholic League (BCL) Championship with a 70-54 win over defending champ Mount St. Joseph. The Owls also captured the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference title. Malcolm Delaney scored 20 points in the game and was named to the all-tournament team. Delaney was the regular season BCL Player of the Year. â€œThis feels really good after going home heartbroken the last two years,â€ Delaney said. â€œWe came together as a team and Coach Pratt worked us really hard and we had a lot of team meetings last week that really helped us a lot coming into tonight.â€
- 2/23 – Baltimoreâ€™s #1 team, Towson Catholic, defeated Bâ€™moreâ€™s #3 McDonogh 71-49 to win the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference championship. Malcolm Delaney had 22 points to lead the Owls. Delaney had 11 points in the 2nd quarter to help TC build up a 13 point halftime lead.â€œWeâ€™re trying to go out with the Catholic League championship and go to Alhambra and try to knock off DeMatha,â€ said senior Malcolm Delaney. Towson Catholic opens in the Baltimore Catholic League Tournament tomorrow and has already received an invitation to the Alhambra Catholic Invitational Tournament, March 15-17 at Frostburg State. â€œWe want to take the BCL title with us up to the Alhambra.â€ [Source: The Baltimore Sun]
- 2/20 – Baltimoreâ€™s #1 team, Towson Catholic, defeated #4 St. Frances 96-61 to advance to the MIAA conference championship game Friday against McDonogh. Malcolm Delaney was virtually unstoppable and scored 17 of his game-high 35 points in the first half. â€œI had to come out and play tough,â€ Delaney said. â€œCoach [Josh Pratt] was a little nervous about the game but I told him we would be ready. The team really came together today.â€ Towson Catholic (27-4, 17-0) opened a 40-22 lead at halftime, and never let St. Frances back into the game. The Panthers (22-9, 10-7) had trouble adjusting to how quickly Towson Catholic likes to run the floor and simply had no answer for Delaneyâ€™s range with his jump shots. [Source: The Baltimore Sun]
- 2/9 – Malcolm Delaney led Baltimoreâ€™s #1 team (Towson Catholic) over Bâ€™moreâ€™s #2 (St. Joeâ€™s). He had 16 points and hit a clutch free throw in the last minute.

- 1/14 Hoophall Classic in Springfield, Mass: Malcolm Delaney had 32 points against St. Benedictâ€™s, NJ. He was 7 of 9 from 3 point range! This guy can score, and also had 7 assists in the game. Better scorer than Munson, IMO, but Munson is a better true PG. Could see time at SG for us next year, too.
