Will Delaney's ankle affect him?

Perhaps the most compelling aspect of Virginia Tech's game Monday night with North Carolina Central is whether guard Malcolm Delaney will continued to be bothered by his left ankle.

Delaney tweaked his left ankle after being rolled underneath a pile with 13 minutes 14 seconds remaining in a 63-58 loss at Florida State on Saturday night. It was a scary moment because he initially sprained the ankle in a win over Longwood on Dec. 30 and sat out a win over Seton Hall on Jan. 2.

Playing in pain against the Seminoles, Delaney grimaced at points throughout the rest of the game but said the injury did not affect him when it mattered. Delaney, a junior, led the Hokies with 23 points and 7 assists in 40 minutes.

"I kind of sensed it," Delaney said Saturday of how the ankle affected him in the second half. "I'm going to play through it."

I really hope Coach Greenberg will give Delaney the night off tonight and allow him to rest that ankle. Even without him, VT should have little trouble with NC Central tonight and Saturday's game at home against Boston College is pretty much a "must win" game if the Hokies are to make the NCAA tournament this year. So I'd like to have Delaney as close to 100% for that gams as possible.
