Delaney named to preseason Wooden Award watch list

With the calendar switching over to October in the past week, it means one thing for the hoops junkies out there: one of the most anticipated seasons in Virginia Tech basketball history is almost here.

On Monday that fact became a little closer to reality for Virginia Tech guard Malcolm Delaney, as he was one of 50 players named to the preseason John Wooden Award watch list. Ohio State's Evan Turner won the award last year, given annually to college basketball's top player.

Last season Delaney led the Hokies in scoring for a second-consecutive year, averaging 20.2 points and 4.4 assists per game. After being named first team all-ACC, he originally declared for the NBA Draft without hiring an agent last spring. But Delaney ultimately decided to return to school following pre-draft workouts.

Other players from the ACC on the preseason watch list included F John Henson (North Carolina), F Kyle Singler (Duke), G Nolan Smith (Duke), F Tracy Smith (North Carolina State), F Chris Singleton (Florida State), F Joe Trapani (Boston College) and F Jordan Williams (Maryland).
