Delaney to nurse ankle in slow week
Virginia Tech guard Malcolm Delaney is still battling a sprained left ankle. But the good news is that the Hokies have off this week to allow Delaney to get healthy.
Delaney aggravated the ankle again Monday in a 72-30 win over North Carolina Central on Monday night. He was stepped on in a scrum of players going for the basketball. The play came with 1 minute 46 seconds remaining in the first half, and Delaney gritted his teeth in apparent paint moments after the play.
"It's sore, but I'll definitely get some time to heal," said Delaney, whose Hokies host Boston College on Saturday. "Now I get a chance to get some treatment. It's definitely good to get a break."
Delaney said he planed to sit out for two days to recover. He has not been able to receive treatment for the ankle because Virginia Tech played three games last week before returning home to play Monday night.
Delaney tweaked his left ankle last Saturday night in a loss at Florida State after initially spraining the ankle in a win over Longwood on Dec. 30. He played through the pain on Saturday night and was effective against the Seminoles. On Monday, he played only 23 minutes in the blow out win against N.C. Central and scored all of his 5 points on free throws.
