Who is your Hokie hoops M.V.P. for 2010-2011 after such a savagely depleting season personnel wise that left Seth Greenberg and company with 6 scholarship ballers in the end?
Not an easy choice is it.
However do allow me to provide you with some seasonal 411 (information) on each guy before you cast your vote in the Poll provided below.
#0, Forward Jeff Allen:
Jeff Allen sure finished stronger as the year grew longer. It’s not where you start it is where you finish in Sport and in life alike men. All Jeff Allen managed to do was to raise his: scoring, rebounding, assists, and his FG% while actually lowering his fouls -for the first time ever- for the season. In fact, Jeff made it from start to finish in all less the second to last game of the season without fouling out to close his O&M show! That’s 21 outta 22 games if you are keeping score at home where Jeff was not disqualified and was therefore able to remain out on the court to end the year. Since when has that ever happened? 13.5 points and 9.8 boards in the A.C.C. is no small measure; as most years you will only see 1-3 guys in that range in Atlantic Coast Conference play. Jeff had a nice senior year and I have no doubt that Jeff improved his professional draft stock for this June’s upcoming N.B.A. Draft.
#11, Point-Guard Erick Green:
Erick Green lived up to all of his message board pre-season hype and than some. TSL.com reported that Erick Green had made major strides early on during October Camp. Erick Green sure made good on all that program insider resourceful scoop. Check it out….a 446% increase in scoring all the way up to 11.6 per contest. A 255% increase in rebounding up to 2.3 boards per game. 300% to the good in assists while dropping 2.7 dimes per contest. With a 360% increase in steals up to 1.8 swipes per night. And oh by the way; Eric raised his FG% by 12% and change from the floor. Seth called Eric Green the “leader of the team” and this kid almost certainly gets Florida State’s vote in the poll below.
#23, off-Guard Malcolm Delaney:
Malcolm Delaney was good all year and some nights he was nothing shy of great. Malcolm upped his 3-point shooting for the first time in his VT career after a 3-year plunge from downtown. 10% is a major bump to the good from beyond the arc from a guy who finished the season at a sizzling 41% clip from range. On top of that Malcolm was 4% improved from the floor (at 42% for the campaign) despite a 4 point drop in scoring overall. Malcolm did have a couple of late game struggles in the proverbial clutch and yet he did actually raise his scoring average by 1.5 points per game over the last 12 contests which allowed Malcolm to avoid his traditional late-season wear-down plunge for the first time in his VT career. Nevertheless, I’d still expect most to peg MD #1 as VT basketball goes. That’s good news, so is a team leading 85% FT shooting and a career high in steals while checking in at 1.6 pilfers per game.
So there are three rather compelling cases for the Hokie M.V.P. for this year.
Let’s put it to a vote…
