In slow period, Delaney manages boredom
Virginia Tech Coach Seth Greenberg has said this is the most difficult time of the year in college basketball because most students have left campuses and players are thinking about the holidays.
But how bad is it?
“Man, it’s boring,” guard Malcolm Delaney said. “It’s just TV.”
With snow barricading the players indoors and many of their campus friends already at home, Delaney said he has been watching basketball games and movies. On Monday, he and teammate J.T. Thompson purchased “The Hangover” and “Paul Blart: Mall Cop.”
When a reporter said that “Mall Cop,” a comedy about a mall security guard, was a disappointing film, Delaney simply shook his head. “I had to get something,” he said.
But the Hokies (10-1) get to head home for a three-day break at a fortuitous time. They have two non-conference games remaining before the start of the Atlantic Coast Conference schedule and should be in good standing when they play at North Carolina on Jan. 10.
“It’s definitely a good time to get home, because some people don’t get to go home and see their families because of how far they live away,” said Delaney, who is from Baltimore. “It’s going to be a good three days to get away. We can rest up a little bit.”
