Latest Erick Green Items
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.
Virginia Tech Hokies 2012-13 preview.
On a midspring afternoon, Erick Green's last season at Virginia Tech was plunged into doubt.
After a spring of tumult, James Johnson is Virginia Tech's basketball coach, the rare longtime assistant whose first chance to run a program comes in the ACC. And he brings with him a message, manner and approach all aimed the same direction. "My voice," Johnson said recently, "is opportunistic."
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.
