PLAYERS OF THE WEEK USED TO BE IN THE BIG EAST

Slightly disheartening to the purists.

That being said, Virginia Tech's Malcolm Delaney was named ACC Player of the Week while Boston College's Reggie Jackson was selected ACC Rookie of the Week.

In earning the player of the week award for the first time this year, Delaney averaged 25.0 points, 6.0 rebounds and 2.5 assists as the Hokies picked up a pair of key ACC road wins over No. 1 Wake Forest and Miami.

In Virginia Tech's 78-71 win over the Demon Deacons Wednesday, the Baltimore, Md. sophomore had 21 points, eight rebounds and two steals. On Sunday, Delaney poured in a career-high 29 points to go along with four rebounds and two assists as the Hokies improved to 4-1 in league play with 88-83 overtime win at Miami.

Jackson averaged 9.0 points, 5.5 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.0 blocked shot per game as the Eagles posted wins over Georgia Tech and NC State. In Tuesday's 80-76 overtime win in Atlanta, Jackson had eight points, three assists and a career-high nine rebounds.

In Saturday's 79-68 win over the visiting Wolfpack, the Colorado Springs, Colo., freshman tallied 10 points to ago along with three assists and two rebounds. On the week, Jackson shot .500 percent from the field (8-for-16).

  1. Neither of these players were ever in the Big East. They were both recruited to the ACC. Take credit where credit is due.
