Malcolm Delaney, Dorenzo Hudson named all-ACC
Capping a regular season in which they led Virginia Tech with their scoring from the backcourt, Malcolm Delaney and Dorenzo Hudson on Monday were named to the all-Atlantic Coast Conference teams. Delaney became the first Hokie to be a unanimous first-team pick.
Delaney, the ACC's regular season leading scorer, is just the second Hokie named to the league's first team. All season, Delaney has been Virginia Tech's leader, running the team on the floor from the point and acting as the public face of the team. He was named on all 53 ballots and received 159 points.
Delaney, a junior, is joined on the first team by Greivis Vasquez of Maryland, Jon Scheyer and Kyle Singler of Duke and Trevor Booker of Clemson. Vasquez and Scheyer were also unanimous selections.
Delaney was the first Virginia Tech player to lead the ACC in scoring since it entered the league in 2004. Last season, Delaney was named third-team all-ACC.
Hudson was selected to the all-ACC's third team. He was the Hokies' second leading scorer and finished seventh in scoring in league games. Hudson went from being a preseason afterthought to a capable scorer and a locker room leader, triggered by a 41-point outburst in a win over Seton Hall on Jan. 2. In his first selection to an ACC post-season team, Hudson received 51 votes.
The players were selected by members of the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association.
Virginia Tech received a No. 4 seed in this week's ACC tournament in Greensboro, N.C. It plays either fifth-seeded Wake Forest or 12th-seeded Miami on Friday afternoon.
