Green, the nation's leading scorer at 25.4 points per game, finished with 15 points on 5-for-19 shooting for one more frustrating ACC tournament performance in the senior's final game.
Green joins Maryland's Len Bias in 1986 as the ACC's only players of the year to come from teams with losing conference records.
After the Hokies' season started well, it quickly nosedived as their other perimeter scorers all seemed to lose their stroke, and confidence, at the same time. That left it up to Green to score more, but he hasn't been able to carry the team alone.
Virginia Tech rang in the new year by getting its bell rung. Maryland jumped out to a 13-4 lead in the opening minutes and never trailed, drilling Virginia Tech 94-71 on Saturday at a sold-out Comcast Center.

Tanner Smith had 14 points including the game-winning foul shots in his final game at Littlejohn Coliseum and Clemson held on to beat Virginia Tech 58-56 on Thursday night.
Austin Rivers scored 23 points, Seth Curry added 19 and No. 5 Duke held off Virginia Tech 70-65 in overtime Saturday.
When Virginia Tech traveled to Chestnut Hill on Jan. 14, it played without Erick Green, its top scoring threat and most accomplished open court player.
In a game in which both teams went all-in on defense, it was Virginia Tech's Dorenzo Hudson who bucked the trend, hitting a 3-point shot to lift the Hokies to a 47-45 victory, their first in ACC play.
Dennis Clifford scored 15 points and Matt Humphrey added 14 to lead Boston College to its second straight conference win in a 61-59 victory over Virginia Tech on Saturday.
Virginia Tech's young basketball team wasn't ready for the start of ACC play.
Virginia Tech's men's basketball team walked onto the court to start the second half Saturday with a three-point lead over Campbell.
Malcolm Delaney is gone. So is Jeff Allen. That's a lot of points, rebounds, minutes and countless other things out the door from Virginia Tech's past four seasons.
"This is every kid's dream — to play against Duke, national TV, prime time and in front of the whole world," Green said Wednesday. "This is a big moment, not just for myself but for the whole team."
"I do know that they will come along," Green said. "I just don't know when."
